Hi, I work at a tire plant where we retread tires. Theirs a small bore needle (no syringe attached to it ) we use as a tool to poke air bubbles out of the tires. This needle has a opening on the top and at the tip but we put a cap back on the tip after use. It was sitting around for 2.5 days without any use with the cap on the tip and the top opened to air then I used it and poked my thumb ( small poke with little blood coming out ). Since theirs an opening on the top of the needle where air gets to it could I get HIV if someone poked themselves 2.5 days prior or would the virus be inactive?
Hello there- I am here again with a question. I cut myselves in the gym. The scrape is very similar to the picture in http://flickrhivemind.net/blackmagic.cgi?id=146487937&url=http%3A%2F%2Ff...@N00/146487937
It is a really crowded gym and I am worried if someone had cut themselves in the same area just a minute or so before. Is there any HIV risk from this? Is this cut deep enough to provide bloodstream access?
Hello! Id like to know if bitting is considered a way of transmission of hiv. Someone i hardly know bite my cheek. It hurt abit when he bit me, i had a bite mark for a little bit but disapeared an hour or so later. I didnt bleed or bruise or anything. For hiv to be transmitted does one have to bleed? Also do bites always break the skin, or if it didnt bleed it means he didnt break my skin. Also, whos more at risk the person who bites or the person who gets bitten. I was hoping you guys can help me solve my situation and ease my anxities. Because now im worried i must get tested for this situation!
Thank you :)
I have a question about dirty gloves. I'm not sure if the gloves the girl was wearing was clean. She was taking my dental xray. I noticed when she came to get be she already had it on. She kept touching inside my mouth with those gloves along with moving the dental xray machine with it. I'm worried the gloves she wore was dirty and if there was a possibility with someone else's salivia or even blood; would I be had risk for anything? HIV, etc.
Recently, I went to barber to shave, he changed new blade and
Did a clean shave at last he found a couple of cuts on my upper throat. So barber did this,
He had a special barber stone, which he cleaned/rubbed my few drops of blood with it and stone has rubbed blood marks on it
My concern is, if the same stone have been rubbed to few other clients earlier my shave with a span of 3 to 5 minutes may have live HIV blood on it
Blood, what if the blood enters in to my cuts I am too much worried about it can’t sleep
hi! Im so scared. A guy (i dunno if he is hiv positive) came on my back after protected sex. As i went to the shower, i wiped my back with the back of my hand. I the realised i had a cut on the back of my hand (i must have scratched myself against some furniture during sex). As i wiped, the wound got covered in semen. I removed the semen with soap immediately. The wound had blood on it, but looked superficial. How high is the likelihood of hiv transmission?
I recieved an unprotected handjob from a prostitute 7 weeks ago. I have not had any symptoms, but a week ago i began to have a rash which looks like pityriasis rosea. I had taken a metronidazale medication and i researched that it might be a cause of this rash. Now i'm freaked out. am I seroconverting? Is it possible to get HIV from a handjob? I think there was a small cut on my penis when i recieved the handjob. Am at risk? Please help
I just came home like an hour ago after hanging out and when I went into my room I saw my brother jacking off in my compression shorts. He didn't see me but I had 2 walk out because I started to laugh. It was really funny. But he wasn't jacking off like I do u know with lube and my hand right on my diick he was jacking off underneath my compression shorts so his dick was right where mine had been and he had his hand on the fabric touching his dick. First of all the shorts were dirty. Second of all isn't is dangerous if I wear the shorts after he cummed in them- like an std? Is he gay- jacking off in my compression shorts or even compression shorts anyway? And what should I do? Could I get HIV?
Are there any risk if a female sucks your balls and nipples?
The other day I was doing contact sports. We are not allowed to wear shoes during training. One person was bleeding and before I realised it I accidentally stepped in a few tiny droplets of relatively fresh blood with my bare feet. Unfortunately, I could not wash my feet until after the training. I am informed that HIV cannot penetrate skin, so I was not worried at that moment. However, when I came back home and washed my feet I realised that I had 2 by 4 mm wound between 2 toes and that is were the anxiety started kicking in. The wound appeared to be superficial since it was not actively bleeding but it did have pink flesh colour.
Am I at risk for contracting HIV if this person's blood contained the virus and if some of the droplets entered my small wound?
Thank you for your consideration
