Hello Doctor I'm 32 years old male I have been living
Patient :Hello Doctor
I'm 32 years old male. I have been living in hell for the past 3 weeks. I'm scared to death and my life has changed dramatically in the past 3 weeks. I can not sleep and I can not perform my daily routine. I'm so depressed and I'm crying all day all night long.
I think I have contracted the HIV virus.
I went to a massage parlour in China 3 weeks ago. I got totally naked and the woman got totally naked. She started rubbing her body all over my body. She was sliding on my back and I felt her vigana rubbing my back and my buttock. After that she gave me an oral sex for 3 minutes. I didn't ejaculate in her mouth. I didn't have any penetration with her. I just had the unprotected oral sex. She performed on me and I never performed and oral sex with her.
We kissed deeply without tongue few times and I fingered her vagina.
5 days ago, I got a very bad sore throat. Yesterday, I got a rash on my chest. The rash is not itchy.
Those are the symptoms of the acute HIV phase.
Do you think that I contracted HIV? Does the attached image of my rash look like the typical HIV rash?
Please help me in identifying this nightmare.
Read and understood your history about the sexual encounter without actual intra-vaginal sex, only body-to-body play and 3 minutes of oral sex and deep kissing but without tongue-in-mouth and you fingered her vagina etc. Now that you have developed rash over the chest, have sore throat and coughing within the last 5 days.
This is called HIV-Phobia.
Let us be rational for the time being:
Whereupon was your skin/mucosal lining broken during all sort of the acts you both performed?(Like your fingers, back, oral mucosa, lips, penis wherever you had contact with the girl)
If there was no breach in the lining of the skin or mucosa in your and her case, HIV can not be transmitted.
Secondly, most of the professional girls get their STD and HIV status if you visit such area known for this (like massage parlors in many parts of the world)
Thirdly, the problem of the sore-throat, coughing can be simply a flu which your family members or colleagues also might have been suffering, just check.
And the rash to me looks like folliculitits, and it looks you had shaved the area.
So just think over all the points.
Tell me a single factor, which is positive for getting HIV.
The thought of having HIV is more killing than the real HIV, as many of the patients do not develop the symptomatic form of HIV called AIDS.
So first of all stop worrying.
Get to your Doctor, tell him everything so that he will order all the necessary blood tests and will also know whether you are suffering from flu or bacterial pharyngitis or HIV and will prescribe accordingly.
You can certainly go for the blood tests for detecting HIV antigens and antibodies to make sure everything is fine.
And I am sure you would have AIDS counselling center in the city you are residing as they are most well equipped for this purpose and have staff well trained to counsel you.
Hope for the best and stop worrying till you get the blood reports.
To err is human, do not repeat mistakes.
Use protection and do not involve into risky behavior.
I hope this answer helps you.
