Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I have an exposure four days ago I went for a massage and the massager gave me a body massage then she touch my penis for 30 seconds and just masturbate it and then I did masturbate by myself assuming if masseur has blood in her hand as I see I have no cut wound on my penile skin and she did not touch urethra so what is the risk as I see I have no break in my penis skin. Please help.


Welcome to icliniq.com

I read your query and understand your concern. The chances of transmission of HIV by massage and hand job are nil unless there are bleeding wounds in the hand. It appears so in this scenario. There is no need to worry about HIV. Some STDs like herpes simplex virus can be transmitted by skin-to-skin contact or kissing or as STDs. The chances are higher if there are active lesions at the time of contact. I hope I have cleared your doubts.

Thank you.

Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

If there is a bleeding wound in the hand but we have no cut on the penis and not any wound so what is the risk even if the hand does not touch the tip of the penis.

Thank you for the follow-up query. The chances of transmission of HIV are almost nil. I hope I have cleared all your doubts.

Thank you.
