Freaking out help please!

Jan 30, 2013

I had a dance from a stripper and she her fluids got thru my boxers now I feel irritated .. What's my risk for hiv . Plus I had a very small cut in my finger??

Response from Dr. Wohl

There is limited scientific research on this particular question, and I am struggling to conceptualize the design of such a study, however, I think the risk of this exposure causing HIV (assuming the performer is infected with the virus) is zero.

See recent answers but this all has to do with opportunity. Virus needs to be in sufficient numbers and get to the places where it can enter your body. It is unlikely that this encounter satisfies the conditions needed for infection to occur.
