I received a handjob from a girl who has chickenpox. She had her last blister four days ago (and that is apparently when she becomes non-infectant to others), and there was absolutely no oral stimulation/contact to my genitals or mucous membrane, not even my mouth. I was wondering if I was at risk for any STDs. Herpes was the first to come to my mind, but I am not sure; I just want to be safe and sure. It only occured to me afterwards that I could possibly get an STD from this. She still had/has sores on her body, but she has had no new ones in four days. I have had chickenpox before, also. Thus, I am apparently immune to the illness. This happened within the hour that I am writing this question, therefore I have yet to have any symptoms, if any. What are my risks?
