I had unprotected oral sex with female sex worker in Asia about 50 days ago. I've read this forum and I know oral sex is very low risk. But what I worry is that 10 days before the oral sex I cut my foot in ocean and I had Tetanus vaccination in hospital. By the time the encounter, my foot wound was not healed yet either.
Is there any risk getting infection in my case? Does the vaccination and unhealed wound effect my immune system?
Since 2 weeks ago I feel my lymph node in thigh is swollen. Rather than that I don't have any symptoms.
Thank you very much for your time.
Neither your tetanus shot, nor your foot wound change your risk (or lack of risk) for HIV. Your risk for HIV from oral sex is, as you point out, is very, very low.
As for the swollen gland in your leg, that is likely a response to the cut in your foot. If the cut is infected, even a little bit, it is all the more likely that you would have a swollen gland from it. Hope this helps. EWH
Thank you so much for your replay. I feel much better.
My cut was infected a little. I injured left foot and my left side of groin lymph is swollen. My wound is completely healed 40 days ago. But I still have swollen lymph. Is this common thing for infected wound?
