Thank you for choosing DoctorSpring.
No, you are NOT at risk of any infection or STD.
From the episode - what you have mentioned - this kind of interaction from a epidemiological point of view is similar to a hand shake or friendly hug. There is no obvious direct contact with bodily fluids, mucous membrane or wounds. So there is no risk of transmission of STD.
Do you remember rubbing your your face or touching your lips before the shower ? Any history of masturbation or touching the genitals following the episode ?
You can reply as a followup.
Patient replied :
Hello Doctor, thank you so much for your reply. I'm struggling with this so much mentally, the reassurance is helpful. Regarding the follow-up medical history questions, I have none of those aside from some minor outpatient surgery to remove some small fatty tissue masses.
In response to your last question about touching my face or...I'm not sure but it's possible. My walk back to my room was about 20 minutes (in relatively cold weather) and I stopped to pick up dinner along the way which meant a wait of another 20-30 minutes (though I did not touch the food until after the shower). If I did touch my face or lips it would be the sort of mindless touching that we all do from time to time - to scratch an itch for example.
I did not masturbate or touch my genitals (even to go to the bathroom) from the time of the episode to the shower though it's possible that I went to the bathroom right before getting into the shower.
Thank you for the additional information.
No direct contact, no genital exposure - You need not worry at all. You seem to have NO additional risks of contracting any infection (including STDs).
If I were you, I would not be worried. 99.9% you should be safe. The 0.1% is for the theoretical "chance" which we all have.
You should relax and enjoy the Holidays.
Do let me know if you require clarification / additional information.
