Bear in mind she told me she was positive after the kiss and she said she had no bleeding gum or cits..thanks
Thank you for providing this service. I am worried because I received a handjob from a woman who is a high risk person. She later told me she has had over 500 partners and never uses protection. She washed her hands before the handjob and she used baby oil for the handjob. However, while she was doing it I noticed a large cut on her middle finger. I don't know how fresh it wasand I didn't see obvious blood coming out if it but it was quite red looking so it may be fairly recent cut. My question is, I know handjobs in themselves aren't a risk, but this wasn't a dry handjob and if her cut with possible blood did mix with the baby oil, when her hand was over the head of my penis, then any possible blood in the oil got into my urethra, what is my risk of getting HIV? I am very worried. Thank you so much for answering my question.
I fingered my girlfriend and she had spotting, I had blood all over my finger and in my cut. I washed it with soap and water and then we had protected sex and I had more blood on my fingers from the condom and I repeated and put neosporin on it. What is my risk of any bloodborne disease?
Kindly reply soon. Today me and my HIV positive friend meet an accident on motorcycle. My leg was bleeding heavily and his palm was also bleeding but not too much. I was unable to go to medical store so friend went to medical store , he bring cotton and bandage. Before applying bandage I saw at his hand and it was not bleeding too much . I think he didn't touch my wound with his hand but he was applying cotton on my bleeding wound and then he did bandaging for me. My wound was deep enough. No I really don't remember correctly that whether his wound was bleeding at that time or not at that time. But he was applying the cotton on my wound with the same injured hand. I am sure that the cotton must will have some blood from his hand . He was just taking the cotton with that injured hand and was applying on my wound. If the cotton has blood from his hand and as he applied it directly ( not more than a sec) on my wound, is there any chances of getting HIV ? I was stupid enough that I allow him for bandaging on wound. Kindly reply soon.
1) if cotton was having blood from his injured hand , and as he applied it directly ( may be just 1 sec later ) can I be infected?
2) if some blood from his hand came in contact with my wound can I be infected with HIV ?
The blood might have been exposed to air for 1 sec or 2 sec.
I'm from Bangladesh. I have diagnosed HIV positive recently. While diagnosed my viral load was very high. At that time one day in a family program i was cutting beef meat with my other family members. While cutting meat i suddenly cut my finger. It was a very small cut. So i was unaware about the cut at that time. Later that day i found the cut. As the cut was small it bleed a little( maybe a drop of blood). The blood might not come in direct contact with other person. But the blood was surely on in the knife and meat.
If other persons also had cut in their hand and they touch the knife or the meat will they get HIV ?
So today I got my eyebrows waxed, and I noticed that the woman who did my eyebrows (the nail technician) had an open cut on her finger. After the woman finished waxing and tweezing my eyebrows, rather than using cotton balls like most places do, she passed the aloe vera gel on my eyebrows using her finger that had the open cut. If she is HIV infected, what is the likelihood of transmission to my open pores/ cut. Should I be worried? Please advise.
This is probably a really stupid question but I have to ask it anyway for some reassurance. The other day it was raining and a bum asked me for some change, trying to help him out I stopped and gave him my umbrella to hold. After I gave him some change I took my umbrella back. I had about a day old cut on my thumb is there any chance of HIV exposure from this? I didn't notice any blood on his hands or my umbrella I think I am just being paranoid. Please give me some reassurance. Thank you!
I have a question that I hope you can answer. I was using my laptop computer when I began picking in my nose and slightly cut the inside of the nostril. Minor bleeding ensued, but I continued using the laptop and picking in the same nostril with the slight bleeding. I read on this site and other HIV sites that inanimate objects and surfaces do not transmit HIV under ANY circumstances, even if there are wet or dried bodily fluids on the inanimate object (in this case, a laptop computer) because the bodily fluids are exposed to the air, thus killing the virus. I am worrying because I have the cut in my nostril, but should I, or am I worrying about nothing? Thank you.
Thanks to Sierra for answering my question immediately today, but I have two additional questions. How do you define 'gushing blood'? It wasn't squirting blood, but the blood was coming out well, and when I went to the hospital they sterilized the wound in a bowl with some kind of pink liquid, and then they stitched it. Also, are you telling me I don't have to test for HIV, even if there were possible HIV-infected bodily fluids on the area of the toilet where I cut my finger---whether the fluids were wet or dried? Thank you.
Can a toilet bowl ever transmit HIV? I know that it's an inanimate object, but suppose you cut yourself on it, like cut your finger or leg on a piece of it? I cut my finger because a piece of the toilet top was broken off and they had to stitch it back in June. Okay, thanks.
