Anus Massage

I am 30 years old never had sex in life, I went to a massage parlor sometime back, the lady has done a simple massage initially after that she started messaging my butt ask to replace underwear and placed a towel,
Then she started massaging my butt crack and touched my anus with fingers, she has done it for 5-10 min,
then she offered sex, I get sacred left immediately without further discussion  and realized later she is a sex worker, I had an external skin tag or hemorrhoid outside the anus which doesn't bleed or itch from a long time
I took help from a doctor online he scared me to death of the high chance of infection of hiv, he asked me to take PEP I started after 48 hours, on 20 days of exposure  I had a cough and cold 2-3 day.
I am totally scared and the doctor is not helping me much

Please help me

You have to remember that we are volunteers here and be patient.  You can not get HIV from an anal massage.  Air inactivates the virus.  The only risks for HIV are unprotected vaginal or anal sex (with penetration) or sharing IV drug needles.  You most certainly do not need pep and that is irresponsible for a doctor to suggest that.  That med is pretty toxic and hard to take. You had ZERO (not even low, ZERO) risk.

Thanks you very much for replying to my post i am really very sorry for being impatient , its due doc was not replying properly , he is not available i told him symtoms in return he send text me to get  ELISA test , now he is not picking up my calls also. i saw some post online finger cuts might touch into anus and cause infection  and fot scared
Don't call that doctor back.  Clearly does not know about HIV.  There are things on the internet that just aren't true. This is a moderated site that works with experts in the field of HIV to make sure the info given is accurate.  So, this is no risk.  You do not need to test for this.  
Thanks this will give me peace mind, it will great if you could help me with my last question. that it is also not possible  if the external hemorrhoid on my anus  touched by  cuts from fingers on lady

Actually I did answer that when I said no risk. That does not impact the risk.  Unless you had unprotected vaginal or anal sex or shared IV drug needles, you don't need to worry about HIV.  NO risk including the hemorrhoid being touched.
Thanks a lot
He shouldn't have given you that medication. Probably he did just to get rid of you if you were so anxious. Stop taking it and forget about it. Nothing happened that can give you hiv.
I normally  asked to know about my exposure he told me there is always high chances as she is a sex worker  if she a have cuts and abrasion on her hands Better to take pep within 72 hours it was expensive he gave other vitamins tablets with that Too
Your situation involves personal contact with an object in air  (her hands, cuts, etc. which is not a risk for hiv.) No worries, because you can't get hiv from personal contact except unprotected penetrating vaginal or anal, neither of which you did and you didn't share hollow needles to inject with which is the only other way to acquire hiv. Analysis of large numbers of infected people over the 40 years of hiv history has proven that people don't get hiv in the way you are worried is a risk.
HIV is a fragile virus in air or saliva and is effectively instantly dead in either air or saliva so the worst that could happen is dead virus rubbed you, and obviously anything which is dead cannot live again so you are good. Blood and cuts would not be relevant in your situation since the hiv has become effectively dead, so you don't have to worry about them to be sure that you are safe.
There is no reason for a person to test when they are safe. The advice took into consideration that the other person might be positive, so move on and enjoy life instead of thinking about this non-event. Next time you wonder if you had a risk, ask yourself if you did any of the 3, then after you say "Nope, I didn't" then it's time to move on back to your happy life.
The medication had no purpose since you had no risk. Find a new doctor who cares about you (or at least one who makes sense) , instead of this one who gives you medication just to get you out of his office.
Vitamins have nothing to do with hiv either, so he just gave them to you so you will feel you are getting treated. You need to stop seeing this crazy "doctor" and move on instead of thinking you are taking the PEP for disease.
"Vitamins have nothing to do with hiv " I meant vitamins are not an hiv treatment or prevention anywhere in the world by real doctors.
Thank you very much for god bless you guys
