Hiv Transmission

Question: 

Hi am a 28 year old male from india...Recently i visited a sex worker and Got my body massaged by a sex worker who might be hiv positive...I touched her nipple,breast and held her fingers ...Immediately i noticed she had a small cut on her finger and breast and she was slightly bleeding as my palm and fingers became slightly wet.When asked she told a previous customer had bitten her in those places during foreplay..Am worried have i contracted hiv as i touched her bleeding nipple and finger...Would be waiting for the reply at the earliest...

Answer: 

Hello,

Thank you for your inquiry. From what we gather from the question, you were asking about HIV transmission from coming in contact with blood from an open wound. From the information given, this scenario is determined to be No risk (transmission of HIV is not possible in the given scenario). The scenario mentioned above does not meet the three components of the transmission equation. It does not satisfy the equation because the blood does not have direct access to the bloodstream.

Recommendation: No need for HIV test with the scenario provided, refer to a physician for other health related questions
