am i infected

May 12, 2014

I had a sex with a sex worker 2~3 days ago with condom on. That night i found that i had a small cut on the side of my penis just below the head of the penis. I poured a bit of Hydrogen peroxide on it, then it started to swell and wound won't go away till now (swell as well). Please help me out!

Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi there,

The condom protected you from HIV. If the swelling does not go down then I would suggest a visit to the doctor to determine what it could be.

In health,


Used lotion as lube worried condom might have torn
