STD risk from Strip club

Went to a strip club and received a private dance from a stripper.  Her panties briefly touched my nose as she danced in front of my face, and then i pulled back.  She did grind against me in a later part of the dance, but I was fully clothed.

She also touched her vagina, and may have touched me with her hand afterwards.

Is there any chance of a STD through panties?  Are there any STD's that can be passed through a lap dance where no penetration takes place?

What are the chances of contracting a STD like herpes through intact skin?

Thanks

Welcome to the STD forum.

The kinds of contact you describe do not risk STDs, which are not so easily transmitted.  Being hard to transmit is why they are STDs to begin with.  Anything that can be transmitted through clothing or by touching panties -- with nose or anything else -- would not be classified as sexually transmitted.

So you have absolutely no worries about any STD from this event.  Here is another thread that goes into detail about how STDs are (and are not) transmitted:  http://www.medhelp.org/posts/show/1119533

I hope this helps.  Best wishes--  HHH, MD

7 days after event, I have what appear to be a few watery pimples under my lip.  I did have a mole removed a few days ago under my lip.  So i'm thinking it is probably healing related to that.  It is in the same location as the mole, and the part that appears to be wet is where the mole was.

From what I understood from the previous reply, huge amounts of virus/bacteria need to be exposed directly for anything to pass (and massaged in for some viruses).  I don't see how that would have happened either on the nose or under the lip.  

I cannot think that my contact, brief, slight and immediately withdrawn could cause issues on other parts of my face.  

Is it at all possible that if i brushed something with my nose, that I would get something under my lip?  Would a mole or other skin blemish allow for an easier transport into the body?

Or is it more likely related to irritated skin healing where the mole was scraped off my face and I'm being paranoid?

"Watery pimples" of the lips, especially on the inside of the lips, sounds like normal mucus glands.  In the very unlikely case you have new oral herpes, you did not catch it during the strip club events described.  If you remain concerned, see a health care provider.  Feel free to report what s/he finds, but until unless you do that, I will have no further comments or advice.
