The Possibility Of Contracting HIV Without Intercourse?
Good evening, I want to ask about 10 days ago, I went to the spa and got a handjob. (not ML, kiss). I was scrubbed and massaged, but there were some red spots on my body. Is it possible for a therapist to transmit HIV through these red spots? There was no wound around my penis. But it’s been almost 1 week that I have a cold, and a dry cough, and just yesterday I was exposed to canker sores. Is this perhaps an early symptom of HIV? And should I do an HIV test right away? What is the result if I do a 70% valid test?
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. We understand your concern. To answer your question, it is important to understand how to transmit the HIV virus.
The HIV virus can be transmitted through several media, namely blood, sperm, vaginal fluid and breast milk. The HIV virus cannot be transmitted through touch, kissing, saliva, tears, sweat, sighing, sneezing and coughing. In addition, the HIV virus also does not have a long life when it is outside the human body. Thus, activities that can transmit HIV are all activities that involve the transfer of fluid from the patient's body to the body of non-sufferers. Among others are:
From mother to child when breastfeeding
Therefore in your case, if you count only touching, and there is no transfer of bodily fluids, you are most likely not infected with HIV. Even if someone is exposed to bodily fluids, it is the masseur who is affected by your sperm, not you who is exposed to the vaginal fluid. Therefore, the tendency for you to get HIV is very small and even non-existent.
As for the symptoms that you feel, this is a natural condition that is found in those who feel themselves affected by HIV. His anxiety makes his immune system decrease, making them more susceptible to viruses, and even though it's actually a common virus, because of his fear, it is considered an HIV virus.
So we recommend that you simply need to maintain endurance with adequate rest, avoid smoking, avoid free sex, increase fruit and vegetable consumption, and if you remain curious, there is no harm in carrying out an HIV check at the nearest health care provider that can do a VCT test . So, hopefully answering your question.
