**** Dear all,
Could you please clear up the following. If a person who takes care of a baby (9 months) and has HIV (maybe event acute phase), can he transmit HIV to a baby through a casual contact?
I have seen many answers and cases, but anyway it seems unclear. Of course, I don't mean cases with big sores/a lot of blood. But I mean cases when, for example, a child scratch you with nails (small scratch and there can be some blood on it) and then gets his fingers to mouth/eyes (always doing it, especially to the mouth because of toothing).
Many thanks in advance!
We were having lunch with a friend of mine. I don't know about his HIV situation and just know that he has many sexual partners. He used his spoon to put food in my spoon, and I ate the foot almost immediately. I don't know whether his spoon contained considerable amount of blood, however, I had an extraction a month before this situation, and although the sore of extraction had been healed, I am not sure whether there was considerable amount of blood in my mouth. In worst possible situation, how much is the chance that I can be contracted HIV if my friend is HIV-positive?
How do some people get HIV infected from the dentist? I have read on this site that HIV is unable to infect once outside the body?
how can we get hiv by deep french kissing please give me full detail
Please Help!! I had some deep french kissing with a unknown HIV status girl, but very active sexually, we kissed for 5 minutes, I did not taste blood or saw any major injury in her mouth, but as a lot of saliva was involved and I dont know if the girl had any injury like bleeding gums or other injuries that could bleed and be mixed with saliva while we kissed, in my case I had bleeding gums problem, I always had some blood when I spit after toothbrushing my teeth, no major injuries that could require stiches or medical help, Ive been very anxious so I really appreciatte your response,
Thanks in advance!!
Hello. I am stressed about a situation that happened in canteen today and need your support (thanks a lot!!) just typical canteen, in which you grab your cutlery and tray etc yourself. In the middle of waiting in the row I noticed the worker right in front of me in the row has a very bad and fresh abrasion (whole forearm), not dripping blood, but very very fresh. from time to time he touched it just to check it or something, while touching the things I did touch immediately like the piles of cutlery and trays and napkins... I noticed too late when already having my lunch... Please is there any risk, if I touched some piece of blood he may left on these things if I immediately touched my cutlery and food? I also touch my eyes and nose often due to itching allergy and I don't know if I had or did not have any of his blood on my fingers... :( and now I am quite stressed when thinking back about it. Thanks a lot!!!
The blood stain was red-orengeish and small. I put my right arm on it. It was on a tissue covering the right arm of the chair. I told the nurse to draw the blood from my other arm, the left one. Afterwards I washed my right arm with a lot of soap.
But now I am worrying that the nurse could have touched that stain with the needle or with her hands. I didn't see her touch it but I keep obsessing over this.
What do you think?
I don’t know how to explain it, but the stain didn’t leave any mark of blood if you touched it. The tissue had completely soaked that tiny amount of blood. There was no trace of blood on my arm when I washed it.
Do I need to get tested? I don't engage in any risky behaviour, so, except for this episode, I am not at risk. if I wanted to be tested, how long should I wait? The blood drawing happened today.
In the hypothetical case that the nurse had touched the stain with the needle, would I be at risk?
Last evening, i accidentally bit the inside of my cheek while eating at dinner. The wound was big and much blodd came out; i washed with water, but i continued to feel the taste of my blood inside my mouth for about 1 hour. Then, 2 hours after this accident, i was at a party, an unknown girl offered me to try some of her ice cream that she was eating. She passed me her ice-cream scoop and i ate a small quantity of her ice-cream using her ice-cream scoop.
Now i am a bit concerned because it is very likely that my wound was still bleeding when i shared ice cream and ice cream scoop with that unknown girl, and i would like to know from experts if this event was at risk for any infectious disease.
Thank you very much!
I have big scar in face and have done scare rivision before 3 months after that I did Co2 laser surgery according to my skin doctor . There was a fresh cut made by Co2 laser, just a day after I went to local massage parlour.
A girl messaged me but her hands were not proper . We came close to each other and had tight hug and kiss also (not tounge kiss) . Our head rubbed with each other during that period (may be several times) and I felt pain in my fresh cut . I had forgeten everything at that movement but Now I am worried . I don't have sex but worry is can HIV transmits through my Fresh Injured Head as it was bloody just a day before (blood stopped but still cut was Fresh) . I am worried because we may have head to head encounter several times . I am worried her skin may have tiny moles and breaks through which HIV transmit in my Body . Her status is unknown. Plz

The lady dont have any visible cold sore on the lips, but I dont know If she may have any other injury inside the mouth, I didnt taste any blood during kissing, but I am concern, about HIV risk, assuming she is HIV positive
