I had protected sex about 3 months ago but i dont know if the condom was latex or not. I am very worried if I have hiv. I have some sort of bumps on the inner part of my foreskin (uncircumcised) that do not hurt. I have also been getting increased acne and dry lips and sometimes a cough that reappears. Can hiv get through a condom and what might these symptoms indicate?

Can I get STD if I deep kiss and sucking breast of a massage girl?I use condoms for vaginal and anal sex and do not use condoms for receiving oral sex.
Hi and thank you for your question. Using condoms for vaginal and anal sex are a great way to lower your chances of getting a STD.

That means, infections that are transmitted skin to skin are still possible... Read Full Answer
Can HIV transmit through skin problems? I've been dealing with jock itch for a while. It's usually a red area with small bumps. It's usually itchy and I scratch it mostly. But it's not bleeding or I cannot see any 'open wounds'. I read so many things on internet that says 'If vaginal fluid contacts with non-intact skin, transmission may occur' But I do not know that what exactly is 'non-intact' skin? Is red skin can be considered as non-intact? Or, simply, does my jock itch creates enough...
Hi there and thanks for your question. There are many factors that lead to HIV transmission and the different risks associated with getting HIV.
