Penis abrasion/inflammation/cut masturbation hiv risk

Hello,

I have been totally scared these days thinking about this recent sexual encounter with commercial sex worker.

I have masturbated rigorously yesterday evening that my penis head/glans and foreskin got visible cut/abrasion/inflammation.  I went to a CSW the same day around 5 hours of incident. The CSW masturbated my penis (her hands were definitely touching her vagina and there must be vaginal fluids). Then we put condom on and did a protected sex.  Later I took off the condom (And I remember touching my foreskin with dirty hands.)

Now as I am reading, it says that penis foreskin and Glans (glands) have mucous membranes with immune cell linings susceptible to HIV infection. And Inflammation on sensitive skin in contact dramatically increases risk of HIV infection. Can you please let me know early of my risk of HIV and if I should rush for PEP immediately?

Thanks

The cut/abrasion is around 0.5mm wide. I came back to check and found transparent fluid coming out from it (not blood). I am totally scared now. Please advise if I should rush for PEP? And this is a Sunday most of clinics are closed. Please advise.

You never had an exposure from masturbation.

Hello Teak, Thank you for your reply.  So the vaginal fluids on visible sore cuts/abrasions do not pose a risk for HIV infection? And I shouldn't seek PEP?

No you shouldn't seek nPEP, you never had an exposure. HIV is unable to reproduce outside its living host (unlike many bacteria or fungi, which may do so under suitable conditions), except under laboratory conditions; therefore, it does not spread or maintain infectiousness outside its host.

HIV is transmitted by;
Unprotected penetrative anal and/or vaginal sex
Sharing works with other IV drug users
Mother to child
