FINGERS, TONGUES, RASH, FEAR
Apr 21, 2009
Hello Dr. Bob,
I just made a donation to your fine organization www.concertedeffort.org.
I had an experience with someone, I later found out was a professional Dom.
During a passionate date, she and I french kissed and she both gave me a hand job and fingered my anus. She got a little rough so I made her stop.
Two to three weeks later, I have a small rash on about a 5 inch patch on my chest, directly under my right breast.
Is this a sign of HIV risk? Was what I did risky? I didn't see any cuts on her hands, but I don't know if she touched herself. Am I at risk?
Please let me know your thoughts. I am quite scared.
P. S. Thanks for being there.
Response from Dr. Frascino
French kissing, a handjob and some backdoor finger action are not considered to be significant risks for acquiring HIV, even if your date was with Helga the Dominatrix!
Your five-inch small rash is not at all worrisome for or suggestive of HIV acute retroviral syndrome (ARS).
If my reassurance is not enough for you to shake your worries, get a single HIV-antibody test at the three-month mark. The result will undoubtedly be negative.
Thanks for your donation to the Robert James Frascino AIDS Foundation (www.concertedeffort.org).
Be well. Stay well.
