Hi doctor,

I visited an Asian massage parlor and received anilingus and a whole body tongue massage on an exposed pimple on my back that was slightly bleeding from irritation during the massage. After the massage, I immediately showered with soap. Am I at risk for any STDs or STIs? I do not currently have any symptoms or visual changes but I am still worried. Also, should I be concerned about rabies? She was not symptomatic but she mentioned that she was recently from Shanghai and had a dog. I did not notice any bite marks on her and she appeared in good health but I am still worried. Is rabies a concern at all?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Rabies can only be transmitted only if she is infected and her saliva is having rabies viruses. So rabies is not a concern because probably she is not infected as she is not having any symptoms. If she does not develop any symptoms for another ten days then it is highly unlikely, because this is the time period within which she develops symptoms if her saliva is having viruses.

However, the possibility of STI (sexually transmitted infection) is definitely possible and depends whether she is infected or not.

I hope this helps.

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

Rabies testing will be of no use at this moment. These tests will be positive only when one develops the disease. If you are very much concerned about it, you can get yourself vaccinated, although not recommended as the likelihood of acquiring is very less and if she does not develop any disease within ten days then almost unlikely. Vaccination failure are almost not there.

STI's which can be transmitted are HIV, syphilis, gonorrhea, HSV 1 and 2 and HPV. These are various STIs which can be transmitted only if she has got any of these infections.
