blood on knife

hello. please i have this problem. our possibly + friend (promiscuous, we all insist to test and protect but...) and he left an apple with knife stuck in it on the table. till i could clean it, our 6yrs old son touched the knife and he keeps touching his eyes, nose,all the time and of course has minor scratches everywhere as every child... i in a hurry tried to grab it and touched the knife too. only then i realised there are some red stains on the knife - our friend maybe did cut himself. the blood would be on knife for some minutes (10 maybe i think) and it also looked like mixed with juice from apple that stayed on the blade (the blade is white so colours are real). it was all wet, but i cant tell, what was wet - if the blood or the juice, i would say it was a mix, but definitely, it was not dry at all, just wet. i just dont know. i did scratch myself when trying to grab it with it but only a little bit, nearly no bleeding. i even called my friend if he scratched with the knife and he was not sure. please is there a big risk? i dont know what to do. thank you very much.

***URGENT*** is my test conclusive???????

hello,

I had a kiss (just kiss) and some body rubbing, rubbing the dick.. There was no oral or anal or any other activity. But the guy later said he had bleeding gum in the morning when he brushed. The kiss was many hours later in the evening. Even while kissing I did not taste any blood, and no cuts or sores etc. It was a healthy lips from both of us. I remember his lips was dry in the corner.

1) Rapid test- Tested myself Negative at 31 days - Can I take this as conclusive?
2) What if he had bleeding gum while kissing- Is that risky? how much blood is actually required to transmit hiv through kissing
3) Considering the activity described do you suggest another test after 3 months?

Please answer

Bed sheets

I was at my friends house and him and his girlfriend had just had sex, I was hanging out afterwards and leaned against the bed. I touched something wet on the bed that might have been sperm, accidentally while leaning against the bed. I had a cut on my finger, could I have been infected?

Give cunnilingus oral sex to proffesional woman - VERY STRESSED - PLEASE HELP

i Will try to be as specific as possible with few words.

13 days ago visited a professional woman with whom:

1. She gave protected oral sex using a condom. I think this action is low risk
2. i had protected sex with her using a condom. I think this action is also low risk. After the sex we both checked the condom and everything was ok.
3. I performed unprotected oral sex to her for about 1-2 minutes. The problem is that about 30-35 minutes before this activity i accidentally bite my lips from inside when i was eating which casued a bleeding for 2-3 minutes (also i had drink some beers that night). My problem is how risky was the oral sex considering the wound in my lip.Do you consider this as open bleeding wound that would provide a access to HIV in my blood stream? I can't understand how you define the risky wounds and cuts inside the mouth. please calrify

Also
- 4 days after this incident i got a rapid test which was negatine (non-reactive) bu the window for this is 3-months
- 9 days after that i took a duo test which was negative.

Can you please provide an answer because i'm fully stressed and i can't slip. The CDC is my country says that probably i do not have nothing but i am very afraid.

Sperm on desktop?

Hi,

I used writing paper and a pen on a desktop at a friend's place and wrote something down for my exam. After 30 mintes I realized that there was a sticky, white fluid next to the laptop and I may have touched it either with the pen, the paper or my hands. Since I have very flaky and pimply skin, I may have scratched my face (which I do very often) and may have rubbed in the fluid. I also had a scrape on my kneecap and may have scratched at it. Am I at risk of contracting HIV if the fluid was sperm? The spot must have been there before I sat down, so at least 30mins - 1 hour.
Please help

Cat Claw Wound and HIV

Hi Is it still correct that there have been no reported cases of transmission of HIV by cats under any circumstances? Yesterday, my neighbour (I don't know if she is HIV+ or not) was nursing her cat and then passed it to my son. Within a small time frame (seconds rather than minutes), the cat panicked and gave my son a few scratches plus dug one of its claws quite deeply into his hand (like a puncture wound) drawing a small amount of blood. The cat may have scratched my neighbour prior to her handing it over as later that day I noticed that she had a small superficial scratch on her wrist. I know that cat scratches are usually regarded as superficial wounds unable to transmit HIV, but what about a claw puncture wound? Even if the cat scratched my neighbour seconds prior to scratching my son, would the small amount of blood preclude transmission? Please, please help me - I don't want to put my son through the trauma of testing if there is no need. Thanks.

cut from the street's asphalt?

i fell on asphalt and cut my hand, if there was dried blood on the asphalt would i be at risk? i read in this website
http://www.aidsmap.com/Survival-outside-the-body/page/1321278/
that hiv could survive in dried blood for a week. it's less worrying when they said that the study doesn't take into account the environment elements but im still worried, should i test?

Bed Sheets

Hi.

I was at a friends house and he and his girlfriend had just had sex a few minutes prior. I was leaning on the bed and I noticed my hand hand touched sperm or some bodily fluid, I had a small cut under my fingernail. Could this have had a risk for contraction?

risk of hiv infection from wound on foreskin

i'm a 28 years old male and recently had an encounter with a commercial sex worker and am extremely worried about the risk of hiv. before the encounter my foreskin had no open wounds or sores and neither was there any on my penis. we engaged in unprotected oral sex and 2 rounds of protected vaginal sex. in between the 2 rounds, the condom was taken off and she again performed unprotected oral sex on me before wearing a new condom for the 2nd round. right before ejaculation she briefly performed oral sex with the condom on (the condom had vaginal fluid from the intercourse) and took off the condom to perform unprotected oral sex (mouth might have vaginal fluid from the condom) for me to finish off. the next day i found that the under side of my foreskin had a raw reddish area that you would see if you scratched your skin hard enough to peel it off. im afraid that during the oral sex, her teeth sheared off the top layer of my foreskin and provided an open wound for hiv within the vaginal fluids that was in her mouth to infect me. even though hiv is supposed to die very quickly when exposed to air, im afraid that the exposure time to air was insufficient to kill the virus.

Small papercut happend during fingering

Hi, I am spending sleepless nights after the incident happened to me.
I visited an escort 1 week back. She was from Congo (Africa ). I did finger her with my index and middle finger.
Later after an hour, i noticed a small papercut (2mm length)on my index finger, at the root of my nail. When I saw that it was not bleeding but get hurt when i pressed it. I am afraid that it , might happened during fingering. I did not saw any blood on my fingers while fingering, so I take this that the girl was not in her periods or her vagina was not bleeding.
Am I at risk of HIV transmission, if the cut happened during fingering?. Please help me.
