risk of hiv infection from hair cutting

Hello guys
I am from Vietnam and I have questions to ask

Whether in the barber shop, that blood sticks to scratches or wounds when my cut does hiv transmission ?
and I went for a blood test and the doctor did not replace gloves when taking blood for me. did i on the risk?
Thanks very much

HIV risk from love bite

Dear HIV Helpline,

Last week, I went for a massage at an erotic massage parlour and gave the masseuse a love bite. I am not sure if I bit her hard enough for her to bleed (I did not see blood but it was dimly lit), and I had a small ulcer (not bleeding) on my inner lower lip.

Aside from that, I very momentarily lightly kissed her lip to lip and she ended the session with an unprotected hand job.

Given this scenario, am I at risk of contracting HIV IF the masseuse is positive? Thank you so much and I really hope to hear from you.

A worried physically disabled guy

Hello,

The main reason I ask this question is that I am with physical disabilty and in the country I reside there is no PEP or PrEP, and also to go for a HIV test I have to travel 200 km ,which is not possible for me. Also in Europe the treatment policy is to wait the virs to progress and then go on therapy it is not like North America

The situation is - I had a guest a month ago and she had reddish chapped lips and some sort of redish gims at the same time I had a small cut ON my lip. I have not seen her for a long time and I am not sure of her health status . We did not do anything just talked very close to one another.

Is it possible for blood of her lips and gums while talking to get into my cut. Is there any danged for me to contract something . I know saliva is HIV supressor but in what degree.

So my question is....do you advise me to start organising my jorney for hiv testing or the risk is rather low and it is not needed

Thanks in advance for the answer

Regards

Scared for my baby

Hi there,

Thank you so much for this service. I have a relative that is HIV positive and I was recently with him. As he was saying goodbye, he touched my babies hand for a brief few seconds. Afterwards, I realized that my baby had a hangnail. I didn't see any bodily fluids on his hands but if by any chance my relative had a bodily fluid on his hands and then touched my baby is there a any chance that my baby could become infected? I am worried sick! My baby also recently had an ear infection, now every little thing I am worried is HIV. Thank you so much in advance for any possible insight.

I fear for my little sister

Dear Helpline Team

Hie..Thank you so much for all the great work you're doing, you are helping out so many people. Yesterday at around 1630 pm I bought some chips (french fries). Now in my country, Zimbabwe, french fries they are sometimes bagged into a transparent plastic bag. So I ate the chips, putting my hand into the plastic bag and digging for some more chips then removing my fingers and eating them. Now I got a small hangnail wound which had stung that morning and bled very minimally. I then ate some on the way home. I got home 15 minutes later and didnt finish all the chips and when I got home, I gave my little sister to finish up eating. I only started getting worried after I noticed that my hangnail wound was stinging (the skin was peeling and there was no active bleeding but a tiny red dot like a tiny sore inside the hangnail wound about 1mm)..So my sister ate the chips. I am now worried about the friction between my hangnail wound and the inside of the plastic bag..what about if a tiny amount of my blood went on the inside of my plastic bag..Could that blood somehow find its way onto my sister's fingers or the chips as she drew some of them out and ate them.

I've been so worried about having HIV I've never had sex before only fingered 2 girls with latex gloves on and got bit on the lip by a girl whilst kissing her

1. I am now worried that if a microscopic amount of blood went on the inside of the plastic bag of the chips and then when my sister was using her fingers to dig in for more chips, if it contacted her fingers and/or the chips and then she put those fingers and chiptrs in her mouth could she be infected?

2. What about if she licked her fingers or the ketchup inside the plastic bag?

2. This incident happened around 8pm yesterday. Should I take her to see the doctor and ask for PEP?

I am so scared of something bad happening to her I don't know what I would do if I infected her I wouldn't be able to live with myself. Please help me.

NB* I remember putting ketchup (tomato sauce on the chips before I ate them) so much of the inside of the plastic bag was covered in ketchup. Could the little HIV viral particles survive in the inside of the plastic bag and on the ketchup and be transferred to my sister's fingers then possibly the mucous membranes of her mouth when she ate the chips or licked her fingers?

Yours Faithfully,
Mr Worried
