Hi. This is a question for my cousin. He met a girl and took her to his place. They didn't have sex, but she gave him a handjob. After, he realised she had an open wound on her hand. It wasn't bleeding but it was red and sore. He wants to know if HIV, or an STD could have been transmitted? He doesn't know whether she has anything, but was just wondering that if she did could it be transmitted through a handjob only, with a sore wound on the hand? He's a bit concerned. Thanks.

Hello! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.

There is no real risk of catching HIV

The risk of catching HIV with an unprotected vaginal or anal sex is 3 in 1000

So you must not worry as he will be fine
