Jan 12, 2011

hi, some time ago i had oral sex with a male but somehow he made a cut on my dick and now i'm worryed i might be infected by HIV or hepatits c. is it posible. something else i wanted to ask is if its posible to have candida infection with no HIV

Response from Dr. McGovern

Oral sex is not a risk for transmission of HCV which requires blood to blood contact.

Immunocompetent persons can develop candida infections in certain situations...Would discuss with your doctor.
