Tire needle

Hi, I work at a tire plant where we retread tires. Theirs a small bore needle (no syringe attached to it ) we use as a tool to poke air bubbles out of the tires. This needle has a opening on the top and at the tip but we put a cap back on the tip after use. It was sitting around for 2.5 days without any use with the cap on the tip and the top opened to air then I used it and poked my thumb ( small poke with little blood coming out ). Since theirs an opening on the top of the needle where air gets to it could I get HIV if someone poked themselves 2.5 days prior or would the virus be inactive?

HIV from cut in the gym

Hello there- I am here again with a question. I cut myselves in the gym. The scrape is very similar to the picture in http://flickrhivemind.net/blackmagic.cgi?id=146487937&url=http%3A%2F%2Ff...@N00/146487937

It is a really crowded gym and I am worried if someone had cut themselves in the same area just a minute or so before. Is there any HIV risk from this? Is this cut deep enough to provide bloodstream access?

Hi
Recently, I went to barber to shave, he changed new blade and
Did a clean shave at last he found a couple of cuts on my upper throat. So barber did this,
He had a special barber stone, which he cleaned/rubbed my few drops of blood with it and stone has rubbed blood marks on it

Blood, what if the blood enters in to my cuts I am too much worried about it can’t sleep

Semen on bleeding scratch

hi! Im so scared. A guy (i dunno if he is hiv positive) came on my back after protected sex. As i went to the shower, i wiped my back with the back of my hand. I the realised i had a cut on the back of my hand (i must have scratched myself against some furniture during sex). As i wiped, the wound got covered in semen. I removed the semen with soap immediately. The wound had blood on it, but looked superficial. How high is the likelihood of hiv transmission?

Am I at risk? Stepped in blood with bare feet

The other day I was doing contact sports. We are not allowed to wear shoes during training. One person was bleeding and before I realised it I accidentally stepped in a few tiny droplets of relatively fresh blood with my bare feet. Unfortunately, I could not wash my feet until after the training. I am informed that HIV cannot penetrate skin, so I was not worried at that moment. However, when I came back home and washed my feet I realised that I had 2 by 4 mm wound between 2 toes and that is were the anxiety started kicking in. The wound appeared to be superficial since it was not actively bleeding but it did have pink flesh colour.

Am I at risk for contracting HIV if this person's blood contained the virus and if some of the droplets entered my small wound?

Thank you for your consideration

Small Cut on finger whilst cleaning dirty hotel - HIV risk?

Hello, whilst replacing bed sheets I cut my thumb slightly due to the sheet catching on a flappy piece of skin and pulling it off. I remember the cut being quite shallow and now that it has healed the scar is quite small. The cut was bleeding quite a lot, however I washed it and carried on but I'm worried that I may have contracted the virus as I touched various dirty sheets and some moist towels, but tried to ensure that my small cut didn't touch the dirty laundry. I don't think I touched any dried blood or another dried bodily fluids but I'm concerned that I may have without realising it. I'm really anxious and worried that I may have contracted the virus as the hotel itself isn't the most reputable. Is there any chance that I may have contracted it?

Thank you, Amrit

Paper Cut

Hello, I have a question regarding the possibility of HIV exposure.

Before having intercourse, I got a paper cut as I unwrapped the condom. I did not notice this event, and after intercourse, I touched the condom to remove it and noticed my small cut.

Assuming that tiny cut touched vaginal fluids or remains of menstrual blood, is it technically possible to be at risk of HIV transmission? Should I take PEP just in case?

Please advise.

Thanks !

Risk of getting HIV from bus seat

Hello, I was riding the bus when suddenly I looked at the back of my shirt and saw that a pimple popped. Is there a risk of the virus getting through my shirt since the blood from my pimple went through my shirt?
