User :   can i get HIV or any STD through a hand job in a massage parlour
Doctor :   Hi Dr
Doctor :   no
Doctor :   you will not get any HIV infection in the manner described
User :   the think happened in a massage center she massaged by full body with oil after that she put oil on my penis and massaged
Doctor :   ok
User :   what if she has got a wound or cut on her hand
Doctor :   since you have a intact skin, the chances of infection is nil
Doctor :   there have been no cases of HIV infection my massages or hand jobs
User :   she pullled up the skin at end of penis and massaged
Doctor :   even if she had a cut in her hand , the skin in the hand is very thick and HIV virus would not have stayed infective for a longer time
Doctor :   In any case, the risk of infection is nil
Doctor :   the risk would have been only if there is a direct contact with blood
User :   now i have a sore throat with dry cough,body pain can this be any initial symptoms
Doctor :   and also in case the masseur is infective
Doctor :   when did u get the massage therapy ?
Doctor :   and since how long are u symptomatic ?
User :   the massage i got almost 2 weeks back
User :   and last week also i had one
Doctor :   in that case there is no need to worry
Doctor :   you dont have HIV
Doctor :   what you have could be a common cold
User :   what about any other std's
Doctor :   or sinusitis
User :   i have sinusitus also
Doctor :   STDs do not spread by massage therapy
User :   and i have pain in one of my ears
Doctor :   in that case, your symptoms are due to sinusitis and otitis media (infection in middle ear cavity)
Doctor :   and not at all related to HIV
User :   do i have to take some medicines for this i am taking panadol 500 mg 2 nos now
Doctor :   in case the severity of infection is high, u may need antibiotics
Doctor :   it all depends on how severe the symptoms are
User :   at night i sleep with the a/c on and in morning i have some clotted blood in my nose
User :   what could be the reason for this
Doctor :   you need to turn the AC to minimum
Doctor :   and then sleep
User :   after the massage i feel also etching in some parts of body is that a symptom
Doctor :   VERY cold temperature can be the reason for sinusitis , as the cold air currnet blows in your nose, it can cause infection
Doctor :   itching could be due to the masage oils used
Doctor :   and not due to any infection
User :   doctor last thing is there even 1% chance of me catching a Aids or STD through the massage i have got.I dint get any oral massage it was just a hand job on penis
