HIV Touching someone’s hand

While at work I touched the hand of an individual that appeared to have an actively bleeding cut or tear on his cuticle. I have a bunch of small tears and cuts on my hands and around my cuticles. Is there any risk for an HIV infection if I
1) touched his cut with my cuts
2) got some of the blood on my hands and I didn’t notice than itched my eye
3) came into contact with blood that he may have transferred to a pen or piece of paper.

Thank you

Different Question about Toilet Please Help

Dear Vancouver Helpline Volunteers,
First of all, really appreciate your work on helping so many worrisome persons.
I searched all toilet related question but not one just match to my case. Could you please take a quick look? If it happened to be similar with some question, I am sorry that I did not catch it.

I just used the public toilet at library in the afternoon. I was in urge so I did not flush the toilet before I use. There are some toilet paper in the toilet water. I did not see any obvious blood by eyes. Later I started to worry. What if there are some body secretion fluid or tiny blood on the paper i did not see because it is diluted by the water and I got some backsplash on my annal area while I pee. I have annal fissure and it was a little bit bleeding in the morning. Is there any possibility to get HIV infection? Am I at risk?

Really appreciate you could help

Threading at Barber


I had my unwanted hair on my cheeks removed by threading at the barber shop. At the end of it, I saw a drop of blood on my cheek. I wiped it away with my finger but then I couldn't see a scar or anything that shows the source of blood. I believe it was just blood from one my hair roots. I wonder if it is possible for me to get hiv from the saliva on the string if the barber had some scars in his mouth.

I know this is a long shot and might seem weird but I am really worried, thank you for your attention.

Scratched myself with my nail and it bled after potentially coming into contact with blood

I work in a laboratory that processes blood products and after we had finished for the day, I went to change out of my scrubs and scratched one of my fingers with another fingernail hard enough that it bled. Prior to this, I had washed my hands, put on gloves, and entered the lab to finish up my work, where the only thing I came into contact with (while wearing gloves) was a computer and keyboard we use next to our blood-typing equipment. The table gets blood on it sometimes due to the nature of the work but it is generally (assuming my coworkers are somewhat conscientious) quickly cleaned with antimicrobial solution and there was no blatantly visible blood, wet or dry, that I noticed. I finished the work, left the lab and threw out the gloves before changing, which is when I scratched myself. My hands had not yet been washed after taking off the gloves which is why I am concerned there was perhaps an exposure risk despite the cut having not come into direct contact with wet blood (my ungloved hands had not come into contact with anything in the lab). If the cut hadn't bled I wouldn't be worried but does this warrant seeking out PEP or is this just anxiety?
Should add: the blood products we process come from cord blood for future stem cell transplant use, so I'm assuming they are screened prior to processing since it would not make sense to use HIV-positive blood for a stem cell transplant.

Licking a school toilet seat

I went to urinate after touched a wet doorknob

Hello, I have a question , I touched a wet doorknob (from someone washing their hands) and without thinking I just wiped my fingers on my shirt and then went to urinate (touching my penis with the same hand).

Can you get hiv like that?

blood on bag

hello people. thank you very much in advance for your answer. the thing is,... I was doing some shopping, the assistant put everything into a cotton bag. the bag is white, I noticed some small red stains, didnt take care, took the bag... at home I controlled it, it is red, it looks as if the assistant had a cut and while putting things inside just accidentally whipped the blood with bag. (the bag was completely new, taken from the shelf, so it should be completely clean). the thing is, i didnt pay attention at first, and i have small cuts on my hands, i kepp touching my eyes, etc, and so i could touch the blood and then.... of course, it was not "a lake" of blood, but i am really scared, and i touched it right after that guy... thank you very much for your help, I know I can read similar answers, but I am just not able to calm down...

I need the help

I had hiv obsessions, so I caught a mosquito, then killed it and sucked blood into the needle. then I clean the blood at the tip of the needle and the needle of the mosquito by sucking my saliva in. If so, if the blood contaminated with HIV from mosquitoes in the needle with saliva will it survive? and if I suck more of my blood into the needle, the blood of the mosquitoes that live in needles will continue to multiply. I was really nervous because during what I described I got stabbed in the skin by the needle and it seemed like there was some water in the needle sticking into my skin. Please give me 1 helpful advice.
Thank sợ much!

Potential Fluid on Bench

Hello there, recently when I was waiting for a friend at the local transit station, I sat on a metal bench, as soon as I sat on the bench however, I felt a COLD feeling on the tip/head of my penis. I went pee earlier so it could be that but I dont know. I was wearing loose boxers so my penis wasn't in a static position. I didnt check to see what it was until 8 approx 8ish hours later, there were no outer stains in on my underwear that I know of, but I am still paranoid. Could i have sat on HIV+ fluid and that soaked into my underwear into my penile opening? Am I at risk of catching HIV?
