Red spot on my leg
Feb 6, 2001

Dear Doctors, About one year and a half ago I got a blow job from a woman, I had on a condom and my penis did not erect I was too scared.Recently I noticed a red spot on my leg about the size of a pen mark blot.Also some acne type circular spots that appears and disappear around the hair strands on my leg, It comes and goes also I sweat when I am asleep. Kindly advise?

Response from Dr. Young

It's very unlikely that you could have acquired HIV through the kind of sexual contact that you describe. Acneiform lesions don't really point to HIV infection. If in doubt, I'd still get tested. -BY
