Can an infection be contracted while masturbating with unclean hands ?

I went to some outside places yesterday and came back. I have a cat who is not a domestic one. In the night, I masturbated without washing my hands but I did not touch the cat. My question, what if the virus or bacteria in the cat was on my hands or some bacteria was on my hands when I went out and it entered my penis? I did not touch the cat but my father is the one who keep food for the cat. What if I get the disease from him? Is it possible? I thank you for you answers

dont think too much ,
not every cat has viral infection and not all cat infection spread to human.
so its very rare to get infection from them
and u r sure that u have no direct contact ,then why r u scare so much?
take deep breath and be relax ,u have nothing to worry.

Good afternoon, Monday, I engaged in sexual practices with a lady which included her rubbing and masturbating my erect penis, me sucking on her breasts---which I tugged with my teeth, since she wanted me to bite them---and her grinding against my body while being on top of me while my erect penis was exposed. She was wearing jeans while this was happening, but after about 20-30 seconds I had her get off of me since my penis was exposed and her crotch area seemed moist. Also, she licked and kind of bit on my nipples off and on for about 1-2 minutes. Furthermore, she fingered herself while laying on her back a few minutes later as I pulled, kissed, and tugged at her nipples with my mouth until she climaxed. But I refused to finger her, although she did lick both of her wet fingers after fingering herself a few times. I just don t remember if she played with her nipples with her fingers during the encounter, which makes me nervous because I am afraid I might ve opened a channel for possible transmission by licking and sucking on her nipples. Also, when I pinched her nipples, I may have had cracked skin on my fingers, given how cold it has been in the Upper Midwest this week. I should also note that I have a broken tooth that has been filled until I get a root canal, and that I am going to the dentist next week to finish a root canal that they began last month on another tooth. Needless to say, I am scared of exposure through those channels as well. I also started thinking to myself that she might have fingered herself prior to my arrival at her home, and, perhaps she stroked my erect penis with the same hand unwashed. Obviously, the penis does have a hole. When she stroked me, I don t remember any pre-cum/cum, but it may have been there in microscopic amounts. She also told me last night that she last tested for HIV in March 2014, was negative, and that she only engaged in sexual activities with one other person since then, but I m not certain what they did. Am I at risk of contracting HIV from the above practices, and when is the earliest that I can be tested? I am pretty nervous at the moment, and kind of scared.

While running in the park this morning I saw a woman take a hard fall off of a bike and I stopped and joined two others to attend to her, get her to the side of the road, await medical assistance, etc. When I left I noticed a drop of her blood on my hand, she was bleeding pretty good from her chin where she hit the pavement. I washed it off immediately with the water I had with me, although I was a couple of miles from home so it was about another 45 minutes before I got in the shower for a full scrub. Anything to be concerned about, do, keep an eye on? Thanks.

How infectious is MRSA? I sat by and shook hands with a woman Sunday in church; I didn t know her, but was welcoming her. Tonight I found out that the visitor has MRCR. How contagious is it and are there steps I might need to take to make sure I don t contract this disease?

I got my dog two years ago from the humane society. We were told he didn't bite,but he has bit the back of a few people's legs. It is as if he feels like he needs to attack when they're not looking. He never has broken skin, but he bit a 9 month old baby on the back of the leg tonight and we feel as if it has gone too far. The dog was due for his rabies vaccine six months ago. Is the baby at risk for rabies even though this is a behavior we have seen from our dog in the past?
