I asked a question last month about risk of hiv from performing oral on a man- no ejaculation in my mouth-precum I am not sure -because I have some badly decayed teeth in the back of my mouth. That question was answered but I have another question about the same encounter. I have read that having chronic allergies can have an affect on your immune system that would increase your risk of hiv. I had chronic hives very badly from 2002-2004. Then was fine. Then had another skin allergies issue in 2007 that only lasted a few weeks. The encounter that I am concerned about happened in 2009 (I know, a long time ago.) Does my history with allergies have any affect on my risk? If so, how much? Or am I still at virtually zero risk from this encounter?
This question could have been asked as a follow-up comment in your previous thread, without the fee for a new question.
Allergies have no effect on HIV risk. Even if they did, it really wouldn't matter. As discussed last time, your risk from the exposure you are concerned about was so low (zero, really) that nothing at all could ever elevate it to a significant level.
