I shaved my back, I met someone online who had a questionable status, before i had found that out they had given me a back massage, and i may or may not have had a razor rash before the message, I honestly think it was after, but my anxiety is making things unclear> is this a risk of stds?

Hi there and thank you for reaching out to AIDS Vancouver with your questions! We're happy to help.

Here at AIDS Vancouver, we are volunteers trained in information related to HIV transmission and testing. We are not trained in, and do not provide, information related to other STI's: therefore, I cannot answer your question as to whether or not you are at risk for any other STI's.

In terms of the potential for HIV transmission, the situation that you have described is considered a no risk situation. In order for a cut to pose as a risk for HIV transmission, the cut needs to be gushing blood and require immediate and professional medical attention. Since this description does not match the cut you have described, there is no risk of transmission.

I hope I have answered your question, and feel free to contact us with any further concerns.

Regards,

Sierra, Helpline Volunteer
