What are the chances of HIV transmission through body massage?
Recently one month back I had a Nauru massage. Can this spread hive to me if the person who did have an his? I am very anxious as immediately after 2-3 days I saw my arm pits paining. Not sure it was because international travel or I got infected.
Not related to HIV.
Welcome to HCM. I have gone through your query and understand your concern.
It is very unlikely to get HIV infection by taking massage from an infected person so don't get anxious or worried as the risk is very remote.
Pain in armpits is mostly due to exertion as the result of international travel. Take some pain killer with muscle relaxants and you will feel better.
Hope this info will help you. For any further query you can get back to me. Calm down and move ahead in life. Stay happy and healthy.
She rubbed her genital parts on my back during massage. I do not have any open cuts at all and i am confident that her fluids did not contact me. because i did not sense any liquids touching my back.
Exactly a week after that i had to travel XXXXXXX I felt lymph nodes in my underarms a bit. But they are normal size only. Felt little bit pain in under arms.
Now its been a month and had a dry cough for which i visited general physician and he checked with me for the symptoms. He concluded that i am suffering for upper viral respiratory issues. He checked my neck as well and told me that its all normal.
I am still feeling more anxious about hiv. I researched on google and anxiety symptooms are also similar to hiv initial symptoms.
Can you please help me understand if i am still at the risk of hiv?
No risk of HIV.
Welcome back and thanks for follow-up.
HIV is not transmitted through external touching of genitals and you do not have any open cuts so you are not at any risk of getting HIV. Forget about the incidence and move on life without any tension.
As far as your symptoms are concerned that all are related to anxiety and exertion what you have gone through nothing else. Be relaxed and stop thinking too much about HIV. If still any doubt left you can ask me any time. Stay happy and healthy always.
