Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi there:

The key word here is "protected". Since you protected yourself with a condom, the likelihood that you were infected is low. I would suggest a visit to your doctor, or a clinic to have the bumps examined. They do not sound like any other STD I have heard of, and they have nothing to do with HIV. If you continue to be concerned about HIV, then you can get an accurate test at the 90 day mark. I am confident the result will be negative.

In the future, only use one condom. Using two condoms increases friction, and the likelihood of the condoms breaking.

In health,


IRIS or just side effects?
