I have had mutual masturbation, am i at risk?
Jan 19, 2001

Hello. i am a 14 year old male and i sometimes have mutual masturbation with people i meet in subway bathrooms. i haven't giving oral sex, had anal, or had anything go in me. i have only let them masturbate me and give me oral. i have masturbated without letting them touch me about 2-4 times, received oral 1, and let them touch all other times, i haven't done this frequently, once every 4 or 5 months. now, i am scared and i haven't let them touch me a lot since i've read up on HIV. these are different people, let me just tell you that. now i'm scared that i'm at risk. to the best of my knowledge, i've had like a part of dry skin on my penis that hasn't broken, i've had since at least june or july (i can't remember if i had it longer). i fear it might be syphilis, but it doesn't seem like a lesion. it has a white colour and sometimes appear read when there is pressure put on it. what should i do. what are my risk? please help me. thanks///lyl..!

Response from Dr. Dieterich

Dear lyl,

Sounds like you should be tested for HIV, although what you describe is relatively low risk behavior. You should also be tested for hepatitis A, B and syphilis, although it is unlikely you have any. However you can be vaccinated for hepatitis A and B if you are not immune. Be Careful! DTD
