Can i get infected by hiv from handjob through masseuse after massage course with oil. Also small scratches in my arm skin not bleeding is that risky?

HIV risk from using Muslim shower to wash anus and penis in toilet If it is infected with HIV blood or semen can water pressure from the shower enter my anus penis holes Into blood stream heard muscle sphincter on penis and anus don't allow fluids in?
Low pressure, low...: Low pressure means low risk of fluids getting into one's body; means no worries. Low water pressure would be similar to taking a bath, where the tap water is presumed clean and safe. If worried, one can just run the hand-held bidet for 10 seconds before spraying oneself. If unable to stop worrying about this, just use diaper wipes intead of the hand-held bidet. Diaper wipes aren't just for babies. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Urine sterile: Urine is usually a sterile body fluid. However, if the person making the urine for some reason had blood in their urine, then blood borne organisms could be transferred in the urine. And hot water alone would usually not kill them. We are talking a whole lot of "ifs" here though, so i really would not be too worried unless there was urine that was visibly bloody. ...Read more

I've been having anal sex but without proper lubrication and I got tears in my anus so I put Neosporin in my anus too protect from infection this ok?
Be careful: Neosporin is probably okay for this, but I would add soaking in warm water with epsom salts and increasing your fluid and fiber intake. I don't have to tell you to practice safe sex and use adequate lubrication in the future, but I will anyway. Please take care of yourself. Those tears increase your risk of sexually transmitted disease. ...Read more
HIV risk from giving a man brief oral sex without ejeculation? Had red patches on skin of his penis not sore or bleeding. Have a little cut in my gum
None, if the guy...: No HIV risk if the owner of the penis does not have HIV. If the guy does have HIV, the risk low for this type of oral activity, but is impossible to know with any exactness. Therefore, if one worries about stuff like this, she either has to avoid exposures (cover the penis with a condom) or verify that the guy does not have HIV. Life is full of uncertainties. ...Read more

During anal sex can the person inserting penis into anus contract HIV if no condom was used and there was a lot of feces?
Not the issue: Unless receiver is bleeding, bigger risk is local trauma to mucous membranes lining interior of anus/rectum getting local damage and leaking small amounts of blood at same time "penis partner" has skin damage to penis. Much higher risk to transmit other way, but can happen. Test in 60 days if concerned. ...Read more

Can one get HIV from touching semen spillage?Esp if I have cut on hand.Dunno whether semen from hiv+ guy or not or how long had it been exposed to air
Unlikely: A cut on your hand is still protected by the fibrin that has stopped the bleeding. Entry of virus into your bloodstream where it can do harm in this setting is extremely unlikely. You're an adult now and this brings new joys and new dangers. Be careful in all "adult" situations -- you owe this to yourself and those who love you. Best wishes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Unlikely: Since HIV does not survive long after outside of the body, it is highly unlikely that you would contract it in this manner.

If you are concerned, get tested at least 4 wks past the exposure even though the risk is near non-existent. ...Read more

A good therapist can probably cure you with insight & help otherwise. ...Read more
