just nervous needs assurance
 
Hello I have gone to a bath house and what I did is cut my hand on the locker door, by accident, about an hour later I went in a highly chlorinated pool at the bathhouse, about 30 minutes to an hour after that I gave a 30 second hand job to a Guy and I am not 100% sure but I think I might've gotten a drop of precum on my new cut that was slighlty leaking pus... 10 mind after I put Purcell on my hands... should I be worried about contracting HIV? What are my odds?

Hiv is passed on via unprotected sex, mother to child or sharing a iv needle. Hiv is never a risk outside the body. You were not at risk and do not need to test.

Just wanted to check, since I might've got a little bit of precinct on a fresh open cut that was ******* and slightly maybe leaking is all

Your cut would not be deep enough for any concern or you would have needed stitches.

OK I had the top layer of skin lifted, but I was just concerned over the blood and pus coming out that could've mixed with precum is all

Hi,

Hand to genital contact does not pose a risk of an HIV infection, even if you had a small cut. HIV transmission takes place, sexually, within the confines of the human body which is the only place HIV remains infectious. Once exposed to air it becomes, instantly, non-viable (non-infectious).

You cut would have instantly formed a protective membrane, effectively sealing itself against a viral infections. As it was you were not even close to a risk of an HIV infection, with or without your cut.

Kevin.
