HIV cut wound.

Hello,
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.

Can I get Hiv from someone's blood getting into my mosquito bite?

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.

Needle prick

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.
thanks

HIV Infected semen into open cut

Long story short i just want to know if hiv infected semen got into a cut on my finger, will i get hiv?

can HIV spread through environment?

This might be a strange question but scenario that has happened to me is something unusual. I was at a saloon and was getting my beard shaved, razor was new but it did cut me. later the barber used some stone (its called spathika stone ) to wipe my blood off saying this stone works as antiseptic. I didnt realise what he was doing at that time. I am worried now because the same stone might be used for others too. are there any chances of transferring HIV virus this way? stone wasnt kept in a moist environment. do reply, thank you.

possible blood contact

I was sleeping in the bed with my friend, who is diagnosed and i had fresh grazes on my skin (i fell on the ground and hurt myself). What is the possibility, that if she had some open cuts on her skin, there could be transmission to my body?

Wound in the fingure

I had sex with prostitutes in two days back and i did fingering also just some seconds. In the next morning while bathing i noticed a wound in my finger. I think it was append from her dress. Through this any chance is there for AIDS and when I can do HIV test. Please help me on this

body to body massage hiv scare few symptoms

hello,
i recently witnessed the one of the most regretful moment in my life.i went to a massage parlour on 8 july (due to peer pressure) , had a body to body massage where she applied some sort of cream on my penis and started rubbing her upper part of body and stomach.I was tensed and ejacuated within minutes. i was terrified from that very moment whether my penis had brushed or rubbed her vagina or maybe penetrated her (i'm still a virgin so i have no idea how does it feel to be inside) , on 11th july i started experiencing hot body but not more than 99.4 f , night sweats ,white tongue and mostly it remained normal.i was in anxiety from that very moment , on 13th july i had a hiv test which came back negative (i wasn't aware of window period).i checked myself to a local med , he told me i having a minor viral and prescribed me medicines on 15th july. Fever(reoccuring) subsided till 18th but i had fatigue and body aches till 23 0r 24 (maybe side effects of meds) .But still anxiety was not letting me sleep , i visited the parlour again and ask her about her status she told me its no risk and was wearing a brief(but i dont remember that).i requested her to show me her past hiv report , next day she showed it to me it was 3 months old and negative. on 25 july i was completely feeling normal till i read about swollen glands and started checking on them , i didn't notice them initially but i guess after rigorous checking i guess i irritated two nodes , in my neck and other between neck and shoulder and now i can feel them they are elastic and does not cause pain(the only symptom i'm facing) .Anxiety is killing me that how the hell can i have hiv . please suggest me if i m at risk or are these ARS symptoms.i know its foolish but i m panicking like hell please help me with your valuable expertise.
Another thing happened on 5th july when barber was shaving me via blade behind my neck , he kind of cut him on finger , he noticed it for 5 or 6 secs and continued . i didn'nt paid much attention to it and after 3 days massage parlour thing happened.I'am just thinking of all the possible scenarios

Thanks

Toilet bowl contact with hand/open cut

I'm a bit obsessive compulsive about this, but I was using a semi-public restroom at my office and dropped something in the toilet. Without thinking, I reached it to retrieve it, washed my hands well, and then noticed two small cuts on the same hand I reached into the toilet bowl with. They weren't actively bleeding but had been bleeding the day before, and I completely forgot about them. Washed my hands again and sanitized them, but I can't get this out of my head. Any risk of HIV transmission?

Toilet bowl

Yesterday I had to use a public toilet. While doing my business some water from the bowl splashed on my anus zone which is somewhat irritated and has small scratches. Could it be dangerous if the person who used the bathroom before me had HIV? I know you say HIV dies with the air but I don't know if it is the same in the water (water toilet in this case)… I should say I couldn't wash my anus zone until six hours later, I don't know if it is important. Thank you for your answer and I apologize if I have grammar errors (English is note my first language).
