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.

Bruises: If it just the soft tissue or even the rib bruises, time is the healer icing and anti inflammatory medicine might help with pain, If it is rib fracture without displacement the treatment is going to be the same, if there is displacement compromising the lungs needs intervention.
