regarding HIV

Question: 

i used the same razor used by my brother,which he shaved 2-3 days ago, by mistake our razors were same and i didnt notice the difference and i used it. is there any chances of HIV transmission.

Answer: 

Hello and thanks for reaching out to the AIDS Vancouver Helpline.

There is no risk of HIV transmission from the razor. The reason is that when HIV is exposed to air it does not transmit. If the razor had any HIV to it it would not be transmittable.
