Hello, I was walking around NYC and I got chaffed in between my legs, stupid me I sat in the the train on the dirty seats. Now im really paranoid I could catch HIV/HEP!!? Its really irritated and sore im not sure if it had blood in the area but I know it stung really bad when I put hand sanitizer!!! Could I get hiv from this or am I just crazy. Im going outta my mind.. thanks.

Hi there:

No, you would not be at risk for HIV or Hepatitis in a situation like this.

In health,


HIV from strippers
