hiv transmision
May 23, 2011

Hello Dr Joseph,

I am just wanting to know whether there is a risky for hiv positive Man to do massage for hiv negative woman. Also the same thing for hiv negative woman to do massage for hiv positive Man.

Please help me and God bless you.

Response from Dr. McGowan

Thanks for your question.

Massage would not be a risk either way. As long as there are no open wounds that would be in contact (and the massage does not lead to anything else....)

Best, Joe
