Can HIV positive individual be reinfected through rubbing by erect penis outside the viginal mouth but not penetrating *Worried*
Response from Dr. Wohl
Good question. People with HIV can become infected with a different strain of HIV when having sex with another HIV+ person. This is not too common but has been reported. The major concern is when an infected person acquires a drug resistance strain. If that virus is resistant to a medication that person is taking or will take later, it may not work.
Your particular exposure does not seem risky for this but please be careful. DW
