Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello,

Relax, Shitless-Guy. There is absolutely no reason to get all constipated over this! The vast majority of cases of shingles, even in 30-year olds, have absolutely nothing to do with HIV.

Insertive unprotected oral sex carries an extremely low risk of HIV transmission. However, since you remain worried about your pre-marital blowjob, why not just get an HIV rapid test? Within 20 minutes, all of your fears will be vanquished by your negative test result.

This would also prevent similar unwarranted worries from resurfacing in the future.

Stop worrying. Be well. Stay well.

Dr. Bob
