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).

Hiv from shaving

I was at a barbers shop for a shave and haircut and noticed i was bleeding from one of my bumps beneath my jaw. When i asked if the hair clipper had been sterilized the barber said no because he had run out of the alcohol spray. This was a very busy day for the barber and there lots of people who had been shaved and had a haircut before me. This happened in Nigeria. Please do i need to commence PEP? Thank you for your help.

transmission through jock itch

Thank you for providing this service. I do have a question and am a bit worried. I had protected sex recently and right after I noticed that I had jock itch (fungal infection) in my groin right next to my scrotum. It was beefy red, inflammed and had some areas of broken skin and what appeared to be small areas of blood. If the woman was HIV+, what is my risk of becoming infected if her vaginal fluid during sex came into contact with my jock itch? Thank you for your help.

Dried blood on watch

I work in a lab where I routinely draw blood. I am usually very careful and notice if there is any blood on my gloves or lab coat after drawing a patients. The same day after drawing an hiv positive patient I noticed dry blood in the the crevice of my watch. Though I routinely wash or sanitize my hands, I am worried that I could have infected myself. I routinely touch my watch during the day and even while eating. I also had a couple of small cuts on my hand that I am worried could have had secondary transfer. What are my odds of being infected? I had a rapid test 72 hours afterwards that said negative but I keep seeing symptoms that look like early acute infection.
