Urethra infected blood or fluids
« on: July 05, 2015, 07:12:20 AM »
Hi, I would like to tell you my story... It was dark area in a park an unknown male came up to me and started rubbing my penis inside my boxers especially rubbing the tip and also the opening or the urethra..My question is.. if he had a cut or puncture where blood is coming out of his fingers and gotten into my urethra (pee hole) would i get infected.. Because two weeks after, ive gotten a rash on my chest area that looks like maculopapular rash and also headaches and neck pains..My anxiety and stress lever is high.. Do i need testing for this incident?
Thanks in advance..

You are worrying needlessly. The only confirmed risks for the sexual transmission of HIV are unprotected vaginal and anal intercourse. Rubbing of the sort you have described is not a risk and there is no need for testing nor for further concern on your part. Get on with your life.

Thank you for the quick reply.. The only thing i was freaked on was the rash on my chest i never had that kind of rash before..As for the headache and neck pain it might just be caused by my anxiety.. Now my mind is more at ease.

If your rash persists you should discuss it with your doctor. It has nothing to do with HIV because you didn't do anything risky.

You did not have a risk for HIV in any way and nothing you add will change that.
