Hi doctor,

I have a quick question. I have fatigue, some soreness in my throat. I might have a high temperature and some dry lips (dehydration). I also am worried because I had a handjob from a stripper about two weeks ago. We did not have sex but she did spit saliva on my penis. There was some rubbing from her ass on my penis but we did not have anal sex. I am not sure if I should be worried about HIV. I am not sure if I really have a fever and if I have something from the flu season.

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have noted your concern.

A handjob is not a risk. Saliva is not infectious unless it has blood contaminated from bleeding gums or open sores in her mouth.

Anal rubbing without actual penetration is not a risk unless she had open weeping sores in the perianal area or anal rim. Otherwise contact with outer perianal skin is not a risk for HIV (human immunodeficiency virus). Regards.

Hello doctor,

And the response is good. So, with the symptoms I discussed is that more along the lines of a cold or flu regular?
