The essential thing is that the head of your penis was covered by the condom during intercourse. None of the other details you are worrying aboutmatter as far as HIV is concerned.

There's no need for further concern or for testing. Keep using those condoms everytime you have intercourse no matter whom you are with. And for vaginal and anal intercourse.

Cheers.

You don't need to test.

And no, your acne would not have been a risk factor for exposing you to HIV. Stop worrying. I've already explained that the condom covered the head of your penis and that's what is important.

Yuri,

Your acne did NOT put you at risk. There are only certain types of cells that hiv can infect. Some of them are found in the head of your penis.  The head of your penis was covered - this is why you were protected. The types of cells that hiv can infect are NOT found in acne.

You will not be permitted to use this forum to go on and on about your NO RISK incident.

Sorry, I can't sleep. Tomorrow is enough 3 months  so I will go test, I am very afraid so I want to ask you back again.
Three months ago,I had sex with a sex workerl. I realize that I have a Pustule around the foot of my penis. I am not sure what it is, but I am a little bit confused about it.My question is during my intercourse action, it may erupt and the fluid from girl's vagina can contact with its open wound. Am i infected? if she has HIV. Thanks

yuri,

We've told you repeatedly that you had no risk. We understand about the sore at the base of your penis. NO RISK.

Don't be surprised by your negative hiv test result. We won't be!

No you didn't have a risk. HIV is not transmitted outside its host.

HIV is a fragile virus. It needs the kind of receptive setting which sexually is only provided inside a vagina or an anus.

It is not transmitted topically. Period.
