This answer was rated:

I am a male and I went for a massage few days ago. I later got to know that the massage person is a gay casual sex worker.There was no sexual touching (he was fully clothed). He didn't even touch my genitals. But during the massage his hands touched some pimples and a scratch (attached photos)on my back.Since I was paranoid I stopped him to do the massage and I left. Therefore the whole massage time would have been 4 minutes.Before and after the massage I told him to show me his hands and palms and i couldn't see visible cuts or bruises. But i still think if I missed a mild cut or scratch on his palm that was not noticable from my end.1.) Can we say that this is a hiv exposure or should I get tested?2.) Although i didnt see any visible cut, there may be a chance that a small cut i didnt notice may have had blood and hence touched my small broken pimple on my back and exposed?

Thnkyou doctor. Hope you also have seen the attached photos of the popped pimple on my back and pimples/ bumps between my legs. Eventhough I didnt see a cut on the massege mans palm/ hand, in a hypothetical (yet possible) scenario where he had a minor cut and it got in touch with those scratches/ pimples on my back the chances of transmission are neglegible right?
Not negligible,  the chances are Zero !
Anything else I can help with?
