I snapped a mosquito in my hands and there was blood in my palms. I was living in an AC room. I masturbated after 5 mins and I ejaculated. I touched the foreskin and the semen. Would there be a HIV infection for me because I masturbated after touching the blood from a mosquito?

Hello and thank you for posting your medical question on E health forum.

There is no documented risk of HIV transmission via Mosquito bites, nor via the method described.

There is no need for HIV testing as well.

I hope this helps.

I've read that HIV inside of a mosquito will die within 1-2 days. What if you snapped a full-grown mosquito and the blood came in contact with, fo example, an open wound?
