Massage Hiv Risk
No: Not even if you get a "happy ending". Blood or semen needs to forced into your own tissues. In fact, massage / noninsertive sex is a great way to get the emotional satisfaction without the risk, and doing this actively / passively / mutually will expand your repertoire and make you a better lover overall. Hoping you eventually find that one special safe person for a lifetime. Best wishes. ...Read more

Handjob at massage parlor. Tested for HIV with 4th gen test at 4 and 6 weeks both neg. Also had a negative HIV RNA at 20 days. Are these conclusive?
HIV: HIV is transmissible through body fluids. Unless you had an open sore on your penis and the massager who gave you the "hand job" had an open sore, that were in contact, there is minimal to almost no chance you contracted hiv from that encounter. The tests are good, but remember any HIV exposure can take several weeks to seroconvert to a positive blood test. ...Read more

Odds of getting HIV from an Asian massage lady (if she by chance had it)? Sex was fast (5min), protected & I came in the condom but after pulling out.
Low: A man using condom properly is very unlikely to contract HIV from vaginal intercourse with a woman. Most men find this sort of experimenting to be less than truly satisfying, and I'm sorry that this has also caused you fear for your health. Your physician can test you using a pcr assay for acute infection to set your mind at ease. ...Read more

Can massage oil transmit HIV via small wound (scratch of a nail), im worrying about this, full of stress, even didn't eat, can't think of anyother. Help me?
The massage oil: Would have to have been put on by someone with an open wound that was actively washing in and out of that wound and your wound would have to be open as well, not just a scabbed scratch. Plus, HIV is not a hardy virus and any long term placement outside of body in the oil would not be suitable for the virus to live. While I can't guarantee it, it is not likely HIV would be transmitted this way. ...Read more

Why cannot HIV blood survive in massage oil? Because of air exposure? Would air penetrate the liquid and kill it? I don't understand why HIV cannot live in products such as face creams and massage oils or any liquid plz help clarify

Hi I got a plantar wart after a massage in oct 2016, I got concerned so I had an HIV elisa test done in one month later which came back as negitive af?
No HIV risk: It is unlikely you caught the plantar wart during the massage. It usually takes a few months for warts to appear after catching HPV. Regardless of the wart, nobody is ever at risk of HIV from getting a massage: it's never happened (assuming no vaginal or anal sex along with massage). A 4th generation HIV ELISA is conclusive at 1 month; if an antibody-only test, it takes 6-8 weeks (rarely 3 mo). ...Read more
Armpit pain and swollen, a week before this my massage therapist and I had frottage. Is this a symptom of hiv?
A painful swollen area in the armpit (axilla) is often due to a swollen lymph gland or an abscess (collection of infection and pus).
Hiv can cause swollen lymph glands but they are usually non-tender.
You should see your physician to examen the area. If it is an abscess, a small incision, after numbing the skin, to let the pus drain will usually cure it. Don't attempt to do this yourself! ...Read more
