Transmission Risk? Ingrown Hair wound
Hello,

I had sex with a female prostitute about a month ago. I wore a condom but realized afterwards that earlier in the day I had removed an ingrown hair, which was more like a pimple from the side of my pubic region above my penis. It scabbed over but i picked it not so soon before I met this woman, maybe an hour or so. I'm pretty sure it scabbed up, but i wanted to know--what are the transmission risks with that kind of portal of entry--i.e. a recently picked pimple-size scab, that may have covered over, exposed to vaginal fluid of a sex worker.

Any advice would be appreciated as it has been wearing on me. Needless to say, I am done with that behavior.

thanks
dave

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
