|Cherry Angioma and risk of HIV transmission
Jun 12, 2007
Does skin with Cherry Angioma poses a risk for HIV transmission if exposed to semen?
In an incidence a guy ejaculated on my stomach. Later I realized that i have a dot of Cherry Angioma on my stomach. Since then I can't stop thinking about it. What if while taking a shower I scratched it with loofah and then exposed it to semen.
Should I get tested? Should the skin with Cherry Angioma be avoided contact with semen?
P.S. Is it possible to specify while donating to your foundation to use the donation for a particular program (e.g. children with HIV) offered by your foundation?

Don't be silly, Dilly. A cherry angioma does not increase the risk of HIV transmission if exposed to spunk. No testing is warranted.
As for directing your donation to a specific program, sure, no problem. Just include a note (or e-mail) with your tax-deductible gift and we'll make sure your donation is used in the way you desire.
Stay well, Dilly!
