fingering incident

can fingring someone with hiv get you infected if you have a cut on your finger?

cat sctrach under pants please answer

hey there !! i want to know whether i was at risk in this situation or not.. please explain me in details !
i was sitting with a person in a closed shop " all windows were closed as well as the door which means the air outside was not coming in" and that person always does Sex with many women and he never uses condoms , i was holding my cat next to him"i was playing with my cat" and then my cat accidently scratched that person , he then screamed and said " oh your cat scratched me" it did him a small paper cut but he did not bleed and im pretty sure 100% that the nail of my cat got into his bloodstream , after like 10-12 seconds he said "LET THE CAT GET AWAY" he screamed on my cat and wanted to hit him , my cat got scared and sticked his nails in my pants and jumped away ...i felt my cat nails on my skin and i dont know if they broke my skin or not but most likely they broke it a bit > here are my question :
-the windows of shop and door were all closed so does that mean we were in a temperature room where HIV needs hours to die and not seconds or minutes ? how long can HIV live in this shop ?
- can i get HIV this way ? we all know that the nails of cats are covered with hair so once my cat scratched that person.. in half a second the nail got back to hide in that hair and im afraid there wasnt a sufficient Oxygen to kill off HIV
- after 10-20 seconds my cat sticked his nails in my pants and broke my skin a bit , i have readed that paper cut and small wounds do not provide direct acess to bloodstream and that the small wounds start healing and forming barriers preventing viruses from accessing inside and also the blood outside cannot reenter the bloodstream which means HIV would be killed by the air BUT !!!! how could air kill off hiv when my small wound is inside my pants ? there is no air inside !!!! and also lets say that my very small cut was inside pants ....what is your explanation about my pants rubbing the very small cut inside where the hiv outside the very small cut isnt exposed to oxygen because its inside clothes ..cus when people walk or do moves the pants rub a bit the skin , thats how i see it will that pose any risk ? ... please give me an answer !! was it at risk ?

Received oral sex post to my surgery.

Hi,

I am so worried about my situation. I received oral sex from a sex worker two weeks back (12th July). However, it was protected(with condom) and I licked her breast and nipple, also rubbed her genital area with my bare hands.

I worried because I had a gallbladder surgery two weeks before the incident happened. The wound is completely healed, but the stitches were there. I didn't remove my shirt during the oral sex session. So, I believe nothing would have passed (Virus) through the operated area. She didn't touch my upper body.

Please advise my risk assessment of catching STD and HIV infections.

Normal non-sexual massage but worried about cuts

Hi

I went for an oil (Swedish) massage and although it was normal, nothing sexual, I was naked except for disposable underwear. The massage therapist had long nails though which I could feel but could not see any visible scratches (maybe one tiny) on my back afterwards. She went quite far up my legs but didn't touch me intimately.

I didn't see if she had any cuts or blood on her hands and am worried because i have quite badly torn cuticles and on my thumb had some skin peeled back (red, but not bleeding). She only momentarily touched my hands but I am worried about the whole incident.

Was there any risk here? Please answer urgently in case I need to seek treatment as a precaution.

It was in SE Asia but in a 'nice' spa (not seedy).

How bad do cuts really have to be to constitute a risk? Information is really mixed on the internet. If it was bleeding when I pulled off the skin, but had since stopped?

Picking up dirty dishes with a splinter / cut wound

I work as a waiter at a restaurant. I regularly pick up dirty dishes with my hands without the use of gloves or anything in between. I also don't handle the washing of dishes so I basically do not wash my hands until the end of the shift. But I don't take dishes out to the tables so I think I'm fine without washing hands.

Today it just hit me that I got a cut on my finger the other day, as well as a splinter wound on the other hand. Would picking up dirty dishes put me at risk for HIV? Let's just say that some HIV+ person bled into one of the plates that I just happened to make contact with my cut wound / splinter.

Multiple Needle Pricks from stranger

Hi, so a few months ago, I was visiting another city. While taking a walk with my friends we noticed a homeless man who was about to fall over, so my friend quickly went to go help him stand up and sit down on a bench. Meanwhile I saw that the man had left his belongings on the ground, including a plastic bag. As I grabbed the plastic bag to give it to the man, with my hands, I noticed a sharp sensation in a few places in my hand, like needle pricks. I opened the bag and saw needle syringes scattered with tissues. My hand was also bleeding in maybe 3 spots. I never made the connection that this was a risk, as I just assumed it was for diabetes or something, and just cleaned my hands and went on without more thought.

However, I recently read about the risks of needle pricks, and am now highly worried I was exposed to something like HIV.

Do you think there was any risk?

Would HIV transmit from Shaving Blades

Hello,

I left my shaving blades in the bathroom for 3 days, and I used it in the morning. I checked my shaving blade before I use it, and it was dry. I rinsed it with hot water for about 1 minute. My question is If my roommates who were HIV positive had used my shaving blades without telling me, would I get HIV from using it? Thank you for your time.

Licked my hand after rubbing her genital part

Dear Mr, Ms,
One week ago, I had some sexual activities with a sex worker in Germany. We didn't had sex. She gave me a protected oral sex with a condom and I rubbed her vagina with my hand. While rubbing, the gel dried out and her vagina too, so I licked my hand one time with my tongue to make the rubbing easier. I have no idea if my hand catched vaginal fluid but I still remember that it was dry. My question:
is there a risk of HIV transmission in this case?
I checked my mouth and I had no bleeding gums or sores, but I checked my tongue and and the very end of it there are Candida albicans (white things) which I don't know if they are normal or not or they give a route for the virus.
Thanks for your efforts!

I did short-length oral sex to a man and I had wounds in my mouth help please

Hi, I'm worried because I was masturbating with a man (no risk at all) but I tried to perform some oral sex to him, but after 2 or 3 seconds I realized it wasn't correct so I stopped, and now I'm scared because I washed my teeth like 1 hour before that, and also I had small sores as I'm using braces permanently. I couldn't see any wound or lots of pre-seminal liquid on his penis, but I'm scared because maybe I got infected if he was HIV positive, is there any risk in your opinion? Will a 4th gen test be reliable after 21 days? Thanks for your answer I'm really worried
