Please help me, this drives me crazy
Dear doctors,

I am 20 years old gay guy who performed one protected sex and few orals. I am not concerned about protected one (after all, guy didn't even cum) but I am about these orals. I know there is low percent of people who get HIV+ by having oral sex, but when I did it, I had 3-days old wound on my penis (skin peeled off, it was reddish). So, if some semen came into a contact with that wound, is it a high risk. I am scared because three weeks after I noticed lymph noddle on my neck, I feel tired, and one week after the noddle I have a stomach ache and head ache. I also cough and had some little pimples on my tongue. I am really scared. I know I should get tested and I will. Is there anything that you can say to help me with this anxiety. Will test in two weeks but this just drives me crazy!! Please help!

Thanks in advance!

Oral sex is not a risk for HIV transmission--go through thousands of old posts where this is stated over and over again and the reasons why.

a 3 day old wound is not a sufficient entry in to the bloodstream.

if you are having health concerns, see your dr...its NOT hiv related
