chafed skin on inner thigh

Feb 10, 2012

i had chafed skin on my inner thigh it was not bleeding but pretty raw.there was some kind of clear liquid in the flesh.just wondering if vaginal fluid came into contact with this area could it pose a problem for hiv.

Response from Ms. Southall

HI Thanks for the question. Only if the areas were open and bleeding and the vaginal fluid came from someone living with HIV and had high viral load.

From what you have described I do not believe this is a risk for transmission.

Be well and stay safe, Shannon

need help very worried what should i do?
