Splatter

Im David from Barcelona, Spain. I work in security and a hiv man who was trying to injure himself inside a vehicle with bleeding wounds on his face was sprayed with hoses with water by firemen. I was standing on the side of the vehicle outside the driver's window that was open and I splashed some water on my face and eyes. Is there a risk of spraying him in the face and mixing the water with the blood of his wounds and splashing on my face and eyes? Thank you for your help. ****

Can HIV be transmitted from tissues?

i was using a public CR and when it was my turn the toilet seat was kinda dirty and had a little gooey substance. i wiped it off with wet tissue ( didnt press the tissue to o hard on the seat) and used the toilet. after using the cr, i went out and forgot to disinfect my other hand which made contact with the tissue and accidentally made contact with my hands to my mouth after say 20 mins and panicked when i realized i had a little wound near my lip and just made contact with it. do you think this is alarming? thanks i didnt really directly touched the substance though just the tissue.

Really scared of getting hiv

I am a nurse. Yesterday, while conducting a normal vaginal delivery i accidentally had a splash of amniotic fluid on mu uncovered arms.i washed it within 10 minutes.though i had no cut on my arm but i am reallyy scared because i had a 1 day old cut on finger of my same hand which was covered with bandaid. But i am scared because of the possiblity that the amniotic fluid might have travelled to my finger cut during washing. The patient is hiv negative as per a 2 month old test. Can u plzzz plzzz tell me my risk of contracting the hiv from this exposure. Should i take post exposure prophylaxis??please help me, i am so much worried that i cannot even sleep.

HIV Transmission through Cut in Mouth

**** Last month I was on a flight and there was some broken glass on my meal tray. I didn't realize it at first, however somehow when the flight attendant was serving me some must have got into my food and I cut my tongue on a tiny piece.

Is it possible that I could have contracted HIV in this manner if the flight attendant had also cut himself on the glass while serving me and then I consumed the glass, cutting my tongue in the process?

I have had a rash on my chest for a week now and I've been worried sick that I may have contracted HIV in this manner. Please help me.

Thank you.

Pulled Hangnail, Cut, Touching, UTI,

Pulled hangnail on my ring finger about 24 hours before incident. At the time, the cut bled enough to require some tissues, but stopped after a few dabs. By the next day I had completely forgotten about the cut. However, that night I visited a strip club, were my thumb, index, and middle finger came in contact with female fluid from stimulation. I did not insert my ring finger fully, but it could have come into contact with some fluid as I know my thumb and pointer finger did (I remember placing my thumb and index finger in the vagina). In addition, the dancer grabbed my penis a couple of times, and briefly rubbed her hand over my urethra. I did not think anything of this, until the next morning when I awoke and noticed that the hangnail cut had re-opened and there was a small stain of blood on my nail. The cut looked relatively fresh as I could see the exposed skin again, and it burned a little when I put some soap in it.

1. Is there is a risk from the hangnail cut?
2. Is there a risk from any vaginal fluids touching my urethra?
3. Would anything change if I had a Urinary Tract Infection at the time?

An hour later, i had given a negative HIV man an oral sex. Four weeks later, i had developed a cold symptoms with muscle ache, sore throat and feeling abit tired. Despite of that, i had a great appetite for food and i still have an energy to go to the gym. Do you think i might have a great chances of getting an HIV infection

Hiv transmission. Please please clarify as I'm losing my sleep over this.

Hi. I've a question regarding hiv transmission. I used to visit a salon regularly 3-4 years back where ladies,trans people get waxed. I used to get my under arms waxed there. The lady used to use the SAME steel wax applicator and SAME hot wax to everyone who came for waxing. Since I would get my underarm waxed, the hairs are thick and I used to bleed a lot in the process. She would apply the same wax with the help of same applicator on my BLEEDING skin to remove the rest of the hair. Obviously she double dipped too. The wax used was lemon sugar mixture heated to some degree in a steel container. If a client before me had hiv and bled the same way and the same double dipped wax was used on my bleeding skin, will I get hiv too? Does HIV survive in reused hot lemon sugar(glucose) mixture or spread through the use of same steel applicator for everyone? I also realized I got chicken pox in those years, not sure if this was due to that. Please clarify as I'm losing my sleep over this. I'm in a state of panic. Thanks in advance.

Hiv risk transition through blood to open sore

Hi,

I stupidly did coke on the weekend and I don’t use notes or straws as I don’t like sharing with other people. However, I was getting the coke of the plate with my finger and then inserting this into my nose. I noticed half way through there was a bit of blood on the plate (I had a nose bleed previously so potentially mine). If it wasn’t mine - and I dabbed that bit of coke and also some of the blood (someone else’s) and inserted into my nose with my open sore, am I at risk of HIV, I am very nervous and would love some clarity on the situation.

Thank you

Cut during manicure

Hi. I recently went to the nail salon to get acrylic nails. While the woman was using the drill to file down the underneath of the nails, she cut me with the drill bit. It wasn't extremely deep but it was more than just a scratch and it did bleed. She put an antiseptic on my cut and continued with the service.I began to freak out because i did not remember her pulling the drill bit out of a sterile place. I also noticed she had been working on the woman beside me who had a nasty burn or scrape on her hand, and the tech did not change her gloves before touching me. Is there any way I could contract HIV from this? It's probably a stupid question but I've been worried.
