Risk From Unprotected Oral with Sore and Popped Pimple


I gave unprotected oral sex to a man, he did not ejaculate in my mouth. I assume there was Precum which entered my mouth, and he was uncut.

I know this is a low risk. But I am still worried, mostly because I had a pimple right on my upper lip and it popped while we kissed (I didn't notice at the time). I also think it may have bled a little, right after it popped after I gave the oral sex. If the penis tip touched the wound pimple, could the precum transmit hiv? Other forum said no.

I also had a small canker sore on my upper gum, it didn't bleed and was only white, it was almost healed. I also have my wisdom tooth coming out from gums, so that area in my gums is kind of sore and , but has never bled, could these be routes?

So as you can see, I am worried about HIV because I fear the pre-cum could have transmitted from one of the things/routes I listed above.

This was my only sexual experience that concerns me.

Thank you!

Risks for HIV are:
1) Having unprotected penetrative anal or vaginal sex, OR
2) Sharing IV drug equipment with other IV drug users.

You did not engage in either of those activities, so you had NO RISK for HIV.  You do not need any HIV tests since you were never exposed to HIV.  The mouth is a hostile environment for the HIV virus (even with sores), and a popped pimple does not present sufficient entry into the bloodstream for the HIV virus.  Forget about this event and move on.

Thank you. I just freaked out because of all the conflicting information online. I will try to move on.
