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
My concern is, if the same stone have been rubbed to few other clients earlier my shave with a span of 3 to 5 minutes may have live HIV blood on it
Blood, what if the blood enters in to my cuts I am too much worried about it can’t sleep
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?
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
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
I got protected sex 2 weeks ago with CSW..I ejaculate outside while condom still at penis..I remove condom with tissue then i realize there's a blood outside condom and the tissue look red..i wipe my penis after that and got amount of blood during wiping ( maybe it got there when condom removal)..no cut in my penis so i sure it came from her vagina..so i want to know how risk it for HIV?
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?
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?
Hope this finds you well,
We thank you for all your help that you provide here.
I have a lot of eczema on my body and hands, which tend to bleed from time to time depending if i scratch or touch them. I suffer from this skin condition. So I was walking down the street and scratching an eczema on my knuckle and it was bleeding, it was actively bleeding. A homeless guy was walking across us on the street (he is possible to have a drug addiction or hiv) he caught my hand suddenly while i was scratching my knuckles and they were bleeding. im scared he has some hiv blood on his hand and it got into the cut eczema on my knuckle. I don't mean to judge that homeless guy i'm just saying there is a possibility of him having HIV since he looked very sick and looked like he is a drug addict.
please help me with this and tell me what to do, should i go to the emergency and ask for a HIV treatment (PEP).
Thanks a lot for all your help always.
Hi there so here's my story. I was outside with a lot of people camping. They were passing around an afterbite stick for mosquitoes. I needed some and I put it on about 50 of my bites. (I got bit a lot) Am I gonna get hiv from someone's blood maybe getting onto the stick and into my mosquito bites? I don't know if any of them were open, bleeding or not. There was a 5 second delay from me getting the stick from a person and putting it onto my bites. Please help, I'm really anxious about this.
I was at the tailor shop when I got pricked by a needle. These pins are re-used and therefore not thrown away.Am i at risk of getting hiv/aids.
