Regular oil massages. What is my risk for herpes and HIV? Using dettol. Further?

Dear Doctor I go for regular oil massages. Just want to know if there is any risk in contracting any diseases like Hiv or herpes etc. through normal massages. The hands of the person giving the massage has no visible cut or injuries. Is it a protection to use dettol all over the body before getting such massages. Thanks Ramesh

Hello Ramesh
It's good that you are conscious about your health and communicable diseases. I want to tell you that by massage disease like HIV and herpes can not communicate. The factors which helps in communication are:
1. Blood transfusion or any contact of infected blood with your blood
2. Sexual Intercourse
3. Use of Infected needle
4. Pregnant women too child
Except the above factor touching or having meal with infected person can not cause these diseases.
Hope you understand and relax your mind.
Best Wishes
