Hi doctor,
I went for a full body oil massage with a same chinese girl in Bur Dubai ie on 21'st and 25th May. On both the occasion We did not indulge in ORAL, Anal or vaginal sex. I touched her private parts, sucked her boobs( Which were totally dry). I had put my finger in her mouth and touched her tounge, Is there any chance of HIV infection? Now it is almost two weeks over.
Four days back I visited my friends house by taking a evening walk, weather was hot and after reaching his house had a cold Miranda. On my way back i felt some throat irritation and developed mild cough. Had Couple of beer in week end .
I have not developed any fever, nor Rashes, nor any lump,nor weight loss etc but have mild itching in my body.
Is any screening for Hiv infection required? Pl advise.

There is no risk of HIV transmission as described by the encounter here

HIV spreads by sexual, percutaneous, and perinatal routes. however, 80% of adults acquire HIV following exposure at mucosal surfaces, and AIDS is thus primarily a sexually transmitted disease.

Only certain body fluids—blood, semen (cum), pre-seminal fluid (pre-cum), rectal fluids, vaginal fluids, and breast milk—from a person who has HIV can transmit HIV. These fluids must come in contact with a mucous membrane or damaged tissue or be directly injected into the bloodstream (from a needle or syringe) for transmission to occur. Mucous membranes are found inside the rectum, vagina, penis, and mouth.

HIV does not survive long outside the human body (such as on surfaces), and it cannot reproduce outside a human host.

It is not spread by:-
- Mosquitoes, ticks, or other insects.
- Saliva, tears, or sweat that is not mixed with the blood of an HIV-positive person.
- Hugging, shaking hands, sharing toilets, sharing dishes, or closed-mouth or “social” kissing with someone who is HIV-positive.
- Other sexual activities that don’t involve the exchange of body fluids (for example, touching).

I hope this information is helpful.
