i was playing with the hair of a lady who is HIV positive but i feel like i got from her hair as she pulled them.
is there any thing to worried about.
I went to get an abdominal ultrasound (not vaginal) this past Monday, just the regular one that they do with the probe on top of your belly. I am concerned because I think the probe was not cleaned, and I am afraid the patient that was seen before I was seen could have had HIV and lacerations or skin sores and the probe could have been contaminated.
I normally would not worried, since I know intact skin cannot allow the virus in. However, I had an irritated pimple and it had some inflammation around it. So I was afraid that if the probe was contaminated with some blood, then I could have been exposed to HIV through my irritated pimple. Is this possible?
P.S. I am not sexually active, and I don't use any needles of any kind, so the possibly contaminated ultrasound machine probe on my belly on top of irritated people is my only concerned.
I am a nurse. Yesterday, while conducting a normal vaginal delivery i accidentally had a splash of amniotic fluid on mu uncovered arms.i washed it within 10 minutes.though i had no cut on my arm but i am reallyy scared because i had a 1 day old cut on finger of my same hand which was covered with bandaid. But i am scared because of the possiblity that the amniotic fluid might have travelled to my finger cut during washing. The patient is hiv negative as per a 2 month old test. Can u plzzz plzzz tell me my risk of contracting the hiv from this exposure. Should i take post exposure prophylaxis??please help me, i am so much worried that i cannot even sleep.
**** Last month I was on a flight and there was some broken glass on my meal tray. I didn't realize it at first, however somehow when the flight attendant was serving me some must have got into my food and I cut my tongue on a tiny piece.
Is it possible that I could have contracted HIV in this manner if the flight attendant had also cut himself on the glass while serving me and then I consumed the glass, cutting my tongue in the process?
I have had a rash on my chest for a week now and I've been worried sick that I may have contracted HIV in this manner. Please help me.
Pulled hangnail on my ring finger about 24 hours before incident. At the time, the cut bled enough to require some tissues, but stopped after a few dabs. By the next day I had completely forgotten about the cut. However, that night I visited a strip club, were my thumb, index, and middle finger came in contact with female fluid from stimulation. I did not insert my ring finger fully, but it could have come into contact with some fluid as I know my thumb and pointer finger did (I remember placing my thumb and index finger in the vagina). In addition, the dancer grabbed my penis a couple of times, and briefly rubbed her hand over my urethra. I did not think anything of this, until the next morning when I awoke and noticed that the hangnail cut had re-opened and there was a small stain of blood on my nail. The cut looked relatively fresh as I could see the exposed skin again, and it burned a little when I put some soap in it.
1. Is there is a risk from the hangnail cut?
2. Is there a risk from any vaginal fluids touching my urethra?
3. Would anything change if I had a Urinary Tract Infection at the time?
I have a question regarding something that has been on my mind. I was rinsing my hands in a public restroom when I noticed some blood in the sink. I am worried some might have splashed back at me and on my my hands( I did not notice any). My issue is that I had a couple small cuts and a small splinter on my hand from doing some yard work the day before. Do I need to worry about this?
Hi doctor, i have got ringworm on my testicles from which blood (small quantity) comes out on major areas due to itching/scratching. 2 days earlier at railway station a prostitute put her hand and grabbed / rubbed on my private areas including testicles for a minute. Can i got infected from HIV virus. I am feeling very nervous now. Doctor please guide me what should i do.
Hi there, a few days ago i rubbed my nose in a womans anus while she farted directly in my nostrals, im scared because i think she has hiv , whats my risk of getting it?
Please dont ignore my question im worried.
After having my neck kissed and sucked by someone who has little beard, I discovered there was a small red line on my neck (scratch), without any visible blooding.
I'm worried about it since :
I don't know the status of the person (the person said having no std, but only the test confirms)
I don't know if the person have blood in mouth for any possible reason
I'm not sure if it was a bite , suck or caused by the beard (hard beard)
I have lot of scenarios in my head, and that stresses me, and doing a test is more stressful for me.
Hi. I've a question regarding hiv transmission. I used to visit a salon regularly 3-4 years back where ladies,trans people get waxed. I used to get my under arms waxed there. The lady used to use the SAME steel wax applicator and SAME hot wax to everyone who came for waxing. Since I would get my underarm waxed, the hairs are thick and I used to bleed a lot in the process. She would apply the same wax with the help of same applicator on my BLEEDING skin to remove the rest of the hair. Obviously she double dipped too. The wax used was lemon sugar mixture heated to some degree in a steel container. If a client before me had hiv and bled the same way and the same double dipped wax was used on my bleeding skin, will I get hiv too? Does HIV survive in reused hot lemon sugar(glucose) mixture or spread through the use of same steel applicator for everyone? I also realized I got chicken pox in those years, not sure if this was due to that. Please clarify as I'm losing my sleep over this. I'm in a state of panic. Thanks in advance.
