Hello and thank you for your help, The other day, I received a lapdance at a strip club. My pants remained on, the whole time. The dancer was naked, she rubbed her body against my penis through my pants, and also put her mouth against my pants, pretending to do fellatio. When I returned home, I noticed several small cuts on the shaft of my penis. I think they were from popped pimples, or just cuts from being rubbed too roughly against my pants. I assume these cuts were present and...
Hi It is true that when body fluids (semen, vaginal fluids, blood) come in contact with an open cut it is possible to pass STIs. However, these body fluids need to come into direct contact with the open cut in order for the STI to be passed this way. Because you had your clothes on, there should be no chance of getting an STI from the contact you described. Please leave a comment to let us... Read Full Answer
If you took a 5 day dosage of zithromax for an infection other than chlamydia, would it cure chlamydia? The dosage was 500 mg on day 1 followed by 250 mg on the next 4 days. I know the standard recommended dosage is 1gm all at one time however I have read on different web pages that the 5 day dosage is a recommended dosage.
Hi Taking Zithromax (Azithromycin) over 4 days will probably not cure Chlamydia. You need to take 1 gm of Zithromax all at once to be sure that the Chlamydia is properly treated.

Can you have HIV without a fever? Since my sex encounter I have been checking my temperature 4 times a day under the tongue temperature and it has been 8 weeks. But still no fever my temperature is between 97.6 - 98.3 the only symptoms I've had was swollen glands behind ear/under jaw but I don't know if I'm just overly aware now since this exposure to anything in my body. I keep inspecting myself and taking my temperature.
Hi Yes, it is possible to have HIV without having a fever. Many people who get HIV feel no symptoms at all. Early symptoms, when they happen, are usually fever, swollen glands, rash and fatigue. Usually this happens within 2 – 4 weeks after you come in contact with HIV and symptoms can last for 1 – 2 weeks. Keep in mind fever can be also caused by many other things. If you are...

Hi It sounds like you are really worried. Keep in mind that that if you do get symptoms of early HIV infection (seroconversion illness) they usually happen about two to four weeks after you come in contact with HIV. You are almost 7 weeks past the time you had sex. I can't tell you how accurate the tests you ordered are, because they have not been approved for use in Canada.... Read Full Answer
I haven't had it diagnosed, but this is at least the second time I've had something about half-way up inside my nostril. I am starting to wonder if it is herpes. Is it possible to have herpes so far inside the nose? Most of the time I don't notice it, but every couple of days it hurts a bit like skin does when it cracks, and makes my eyes water a little bit with a little bit of stinging. I think it's been around for a couple weeks, I am wondering if it is contagious through my saliva if it...
Hi there It is possible to have a herpes sore inside your nose. It is also true that the herpes virus can be carried in body fluids including saliva or the mucous in your nose. There is some chance of passing on the virus if there is contact with those fluids. However, the main way to pass on herpes is by direct contact with the sore during an outbreak. If you have a herpes sore in your nose,... Read Full Answer
