Do I need post-exposure prophylaxis for HIV after the following exposures:
1) Open mouth or french kissing.
2) Handjob and hand masturbation.
Have there been known cases of HIV transmission after such exposures?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
I have noted your concern. There is no risk of HIV transmission from the open mouth or deep kissing or skin to skin contact as in a handjob. They do not qualify as a risk for HIV transmission. Hence there is no need for post-exposure prophylaxis.
Thank you doctor,
I also forgot to mention that I fingered her clitoral area. What is the risk from this exposure?
Welcome back to icliniq.com.
Fingering carries no risk. The virus cannot pass through the skin.
