I have a quick question if you don't mind. I was wondering if the vaginal secretions from an HIV infected woman were to get on the rash from jock itch, would that increase the risk of transmission? Thank you for your time and work in the forum.
Response from Mr. Kull
Having jock itch does not provide HIV access to your bloodstream. Skin, even with a rash, is an effective barrier against HIV.
