touched alot of semen

Jan 6, 2014

I got 20 minute old semen in my cracked maybe bleeding dryed skin with small open cracks on skin. Is this a risk for hiv or hep c? Thanks for your help.

Response from Ms. Southall

Hi The risk of HIV transmission is no as HIV begins to die once it is outside of the body and becomes unable to infect. Hepatitis C does last much longer and is a possibility. But the risk of transmission is still incredibly small. The cracks and openings need to be active open and bleeding for there to be a risk. The likelihood is incredibly small.

Be well and stay safe, Shannon

Tip of penis went into the anus
