My friend gave a person a handjob and realized she had several small 2 day old cuts on hand from washing dishes and now has a rash that burns in the chest area and neck. can you get infected with hiv by this manner?

It is still possible if that person carries HIV. More important, you did not describe the temporal relationship of that hand job and the rash appearance. In general, rashes due to HIV infection are usually not burning, mostly asymptomatic, only mild itching sometimes. Your friend may have shingles (herpes zoster infection) with the burning rashes. However, it's best if she can be examined.

HIV is a blood to blood virus. If the penis had no cuts or bruises than no problem. If the person receiving the hand job is HIV positive and the sperm comes in contact with open wound than an infection is possible .Your rash is not related to sexual activity but see a DERMATOLOGIST.
