Response from Ms. Southall
Hi Seborrheic dermatitis is a late symptom. Insertive anal sex is the highest risk behavior but having some protection decreases the chances. The only true way to know is for her to be tested. The guidelines for HIV testing are to be initially tested at 3 weeks then again at 3 months, if both of these tests are negative then so are you.
Be well and stay safe, Shannon
