Massage - ARS Symptoms

I very worried. 2 week back i get massage from lady at place. This was nude body to body massage, but there was no interaction between genital, I do not think they touch at all. After massage, she make me ejaculate with hands.

I know this supposedly no risk, but now 2 weeks later I have fever, sore throat, and rash on top of hands. Every ARS symptom I have. I very scared and hoping you can help.

Sorry for bad English, am not native speaker.

Thank u

The ONLY risks for HIV are to have unprotected vaginal or anal sex or to share IV needles to inject drugs. Air inactivates the saliva. So, genitals touching do not lead to hiv transmission. Air surrounds you. People don't get hiv this way. Something important to know about HIV is that it isn't transmitted easily at all and that is why even unprotected sex carries less than one percent risk. It's hard to get HIV!  Symptoms are also never used to diagnose it. You have likely a run of the mill virus. I have had two bad colds that were like your symptoms recently. So, no risk at all or worry of hiv here.

Thanks for response. What worry me is the rash on hand and palm, which I've read is ARS common symptoms. Fever only last 2-3 days. ARS fever would be longer yes?
Maybe you have a cancer, flu, chemical irritation on your hand etc. You have no medical training so should have zero confidence in your ability to diagnose disease, but unfortunately you think you are a google doctor and think you can diagnose disease. That'sbad thinking on your part because you should realize that you are not a doctor.

Your idea that you have hiv makes ZERO sense since you didn't have any hiv risk. See a mental health therapist if you can't stop thinking that hiv is the only disease in the world, and if you can't stop imagining a crazy scenario where you got hiv by magic - which is what you are thinking today. Your problem is called hiv fixation.
Do you think the massage gave you immunity from any diseases (except hiv) so you think the sore throat can't be from cancer or from someone with a sore throat breathing virus in your air?
I understand what you saying. However, I willing to call this a coincidence of time until the rash showed up, which looks like pictures of HIV rash on hand. No rash other places though.
No, you don't " understand what I'm saying" at all. Your ideas are illogical, and your posts prove you understand nothing about hiv transmission.
See a mental health therapist for your hiv fixation.

You already know it's no risk.
This isn't the first sore throat you have ever had, so the advice is to stop going to pieces over this one. I have no idea why you feel this sore throat came from hiv, instead of normal respiratory transmission like all the rest of your sore throats.

Because of timing is directly inline with ARS when it should show up, and presence of hand rash after fever. Is there zero possible chance to get HIV from this encounter? What about secretions on hand during pump etc.
Or if genital accidentally touched ?
"Is there zero possible chance to get HIV from this encounter?" Already answered. You copied the answer and stuck a question mark on the end of it! Therefore, the rest of your ideas do not make any sense.
Your situation involves personal contact with an object in air  (hand, maybe blood, maybe cuts, body and penis touching vagina, etc. ) . You will be happy to learn that you had no risk, because you can't get hiv from personal contact except unprotected penetrating vaginal or anal with a penis, neither of which you did and you didn't share hollow needles to inject with which is the only other way to acquire hiv - there are ONLY 3 ways to get hiv. Note that 2 of them require a penis and the third requires a hollow injecting shared needle - there are no OTHER ways to get 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. hiv prevention is straightforward since there are only 3 ways you can become infected, so next time you wonder if you had a risk, ask yourself this QUESTION. "Did I do any of the 3?" Then after you ANSWER "No, I didn't" you will know that it's time to move on back to your happy life.
No one got hiv from what you did during 40 years of hiv history and no one will get it in the next 40 years of your life either.  You can do what you did any time and be safe from hiv.
The other person's status is irrelevant when you have no exposure to live virus.
If you still have questions about your risk, after reading all of the above, then it is because you didn't answer the QUESTION above.
