really worry please help me please

Sep 30, 2013

Dear Shannon I know you get angry of my repetitive question which may be like other asked questions but may I beg you please kindly answer my question please 6 weeks ago I had an oral sex (receptive) and very gentle fingering just like rubbing (without any entrance as I'm still a virgin)from a boy with unknown HIV status. unfortunately during the French kiss my lip turned to bleeding but not his. is it possible to get HIV by Saliva while my lip was bleeding or during Oral Sex? during this week (week 6 after exposure) I'm experiencing septic sore throat for 5 days which is so mild with mild fever which went away after 3 days by some casual cold pills and 4 skin rashes on my thorax is it due to HIV? please answer my question I can not even sleep during the night and eat.I have been always scarring from getting HIV one day and finally it happened :((((( I can not do even usual things during day I'm thinking over and over about HIV all the time

Response from Ms. Southall

Hi I don't get angry with questions! That's why we are all here!

What you experienced does not carry a risk for HIV transmission! It is not passed through kissing and fingering doesn't pose a risk either.

You most likely just picked up a virus or bacteria or cold. But it's not HIV.

Sleep well and let go of the anxiousness!!!

Be well and stay safe, Shannon

My son and sewage water PLEASE ANSWER ME!!!!
