Is it possible to get HIV from waxing ?

Hello I am a Surgery Technologist student. Today my friend got a full body wax. Afterwards him and his friend, masturbated.... Comes to find one of the boys is HIV +. How about if we think outside of the normal question, and say the Hiv + person ejected onto the person who just got waxed. Would it be possible for the body fluids to travel down the hair follicle, which is now open and into the blood stream , which would result in a possible HIV Infection? Experts agree that ejaculating on the skin is consider safe Sex , would this method still be in that category? Last question, if an infection could occur, how long can a person wait after being waxed to have sex? Think Hard, these are tricky questions with no research to back them up!

HI
its very interesting one.
one thing in HIV is there -it spread from contact also but only when there is break in skin both side.or blood contact to broken skin.
after waxing skin damage is there.
skin become open due to loss of hair.
so after wax if u r coming in direct contact with HIV positive person whose skin is also damage,or with his blood or semen ,only then minor chance of getting infection is there,
after wax it need 7-10 day to recover.
this is my opinion and i am sure i am not wrong.
I find this answer helpful

Hi, I'm male, 30 yrs old and recently had unprotected sex with a girl i don't really know. As soon as the next day I noticed that my penis head was blotchy and red but without any pain or itching. There are no sores or blisters. This was now 4 days ago and there has been very litlle to no change in the symptoms. I have showered a couple of times and not used any creams or lotions. All the research I have done online suggests that it is very unlikely that these are the symptoms of a sexually transmitted disease but I am still very worried that I may have caught something, especially as I would not want to infect anyone else. Please help!

I have been experiencing cold-like symptoms for the last few days. My father had the same symptoms and was better after four or so days. Today, however, I noticed that my stool color was a clayish white accompanied with moderate abdominal pain on my right side. Is this cause for concern?

Additional information. I have been drinking plenty of fluids (water and gatorade with the occasional soda) and haven't had any dietary changes. I have been taking vitamin C tablets, Sudafed, and Nyquil. I was in the Bahamas three weeks ago. I have had intercourse with only my girlfriend in the last year, prior to I had been tested for hepatitis and other STDs, all of which came back negative. I also chew tobacco regularly.

Hi. I am a 20 year old female. I was recently treated for a UTI which lead me to have a yeast infection. I since have been treated for both. I was also tested for STDs, as I am very afraid of them- twice. All results were negative both times. I am still having a burning sensation however and having some pain on the left side close to where the back side of the pelvis bone is if that makes sense. I never get this pain on my right side and it more of a dull, throbbing pain. The doctor said my lymph nodes were fine and I'm going to get checked again next week- just wondering if you had any ideas?
