Dear XXXXXXX
Thank you for your query .

You are much worried about HIV infection.

The symptoms you wrote above are not of HIV infection.

HIV is transmitted by body fluids.

The chance of HIV infection from this shemale is negligible as you told there is no anal intercourse has occured.

The symptoms which you described may be due to anxiety. Nothing to worry about HIV infection.

Hope I cleared your doubt. I am still available for follow up.

Regards

Dear XXXXXXX

When was your exposure, i.e. the massage with the she male?

HIV infection as such will not show any symptoms. The symptoms of HIV/AIDS are due to decreased immunity caused by the HIV virus. The opportunistic pathogens like Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Candida albicans etc becomes pathogenic and show the symptoms of its disease.

The possibility of contracting HIV through the abovesaid exposure is somewhat impossible.

The itch bump on your underarm may be due to fungal/bacterial infection.

I hope, I have answered your query.

Wish you good health.

Regards.

Dear XXXXXXX
Thanks for the follow up.

Do not be worried about HIV. By mere touching you will not transmit the disease.

Even by kissing, the chance of transmission is very less.

It is nice that you are taking alprazolam. It shall relieve your anxiety.

The itchy bump is not at all associated with your exposure.

Hope I have cleared your query well.

regards
