Can I get HIV from a razor blade?

During shave I felt pain in my partially popped pimples but noticed no visible blood 1 hour after shave ( I didn't check immediately and checked only after returning home and had washed my face within that time). After I came home I noticed a few red scratches around my neck, although there was a slight pain but again there was no visible blood. Am I at risk? And also do the partially popped pimples pose a risk? I repeat there was no visible blood 1 hour after shave (I can't remember if there was during shaving though). I had almost 4/5 pimples around my face, some were partially popped and others were not popped. I experienced slight pain around my pimples and scratches during shave but there was no visible blood. The barber said he had changed blades but I don't believe him. Also there was around 1 minute time gap between the last customer and me. I am concerned that during shave my unpopped pimples were opened and it bled but remained unnoticed as I checked after 1 hour. Is this scenario possible? I am also worried about those red scratches around my neck. I can't remember if they were present before the shave or were created by the razor. If they were present before the shave and it bled while shaving would it have been possible by the time I noticed it (after 1 hour) all traces of blood around the scratches vanished? Or If the razor created those scratches, is that bad news for me. Can infected blood pass through scratches? How do I attach a picture of those red scratches made my the razor? I would also like to know if the shaving cream kills the virus. Please help me out I am extremely worried and can't focus on my studies. Thank You.

unprotected/protected oral insertive sex with shaving nicks and flu like symptom

I went to beauty parlor girl 45 days before and while massaging she took my penis in her mouth for one second. Immediately I removed my penis and put condom and she gave me blowjob for 3-4 minutes., but my dick was not erect, so she did handjob. While sucking I saw her saliva coming down towards the base of penis where I did shaved my pubic hair before 3 hrs and their might be some superficial nicks bruises, abrasions, lesions. So what are my risk of

1.unprotected oral sex of one/two second.
2. if she had bleeding gums or sores in her mouth and her saliva mix with her blood enter to the unprotected area of my genital where there is superficial cuts before 3 hrs while sucking.
3 Also, if there is your risk assessment change, if the skin of the genital area including the pubic hair area, base of penis and scrotum which has thin skin and it will also be considered superficial cuts and will seal immediately after shaving cuts and not be direct access to the blood.

After 27 days of exposure I got runny nose for few hrs on first day.

Second day I was feeling chills all day.

Third and fourth day mild sore throat and low grade fever on and off.I was so scared that,I took rest for 2 days with 3 doses of paracetamol and 3 doses of antibiotic for two days fearing ars symptom.

Again after 39 days I got runny noses and chills on first day and mild sore throat and sometimes little temp and now it is 5th day and still sometimes feel mild fever.( I am not taking medicine for second time)

I m very depressed and very fear.

I had no other exposure other than this. had only sex with my wife since 20 yrs. Should I be tested or no test is required and I ignore this flu like symptom as not related to hiv and move on. plz help me I m very anxious and depressed. I am panicking and unable to eat & sleep since this exposure.

Small cut on finger after tattooing someone

Hello. So I was taking a tattoo needle off the machine and as I did the upper part of the needle, not the one in contact with the body of the client, made a small cut in my finger, which then proceeded to bleed a bit. My hands had some ink and vaseline residue from handling the tattoo machine so I am scared that the vaseline/ink might have been a carrier for HIV cells into my bloodstream? When tattooing intense coloring/shading can make the person bleed a bit, but I was just doing lines, where the amount of blood is much lower. The cut was superficial, but still bled (a few drops) before I cleaned it off with soap (not anti-bacterial) and water, and after a few minutes I cleaned it with alcohol. Just to be clear this happened after the client had left so I had no contact with him whatsoever. I'm just concerned for my well-being and wanted to know whether I should consider myself "at risk" of infection. Thank you.

Health Care provider exposure

I'm a community worker and I'm afraid that I might have been exposed to blood from a homeless patient yesterday. The person was leaving the hospital when I witnessed him falling into the street. I assisted the man in getting to his feet so he would not be hit by a car. I noticed that his elbow was bleeding so I handed him some band-aids from my purse. About one hour later I noticed some drops of blood on my dress while back at my desk. I have eczema on my hands, so I became concerned about exposure. I reported the incident to employee health services and went to the ER. My blood was tested to establish a baseline health status and the results were negative for HIV and hep B and C. The ER doctor did not recommend PEP treatment and stated that my risk was low for HIV, about 1 in 100,000. I'm still worried. Especially since I don't know if the blood got on my hands and I have eczema. I used hand sanitizer directly after helping the man, but I did not wash my hands until about an hour later. Also, I did not get the name of the man, so I don't know his health status. Am I at risk?


Dear Sir/Ma'am
I was operated on 14-June-2016 for gall stone disease. Before operation one person came to trim hairs from my stomach and genital parts. He was using a hair trimmer. Accidentally he made a minor cut on my lower abdomen (there was no bleeding initially). After a few minutes I went to bath room and wash that cut with water and squeezed the cut to get blood out of it and again wash the wound. After two or three days the wound/cut healed.
Now after one month I developed some pich type random rashes on some parts like forearms lower legs and thigh. I am also feeling pinch like pain in my groin area with mild fever. I tested for HIV 1 and HIV 2 antibodies two days ago and the result was negative.
Please throw some light can I get HIV infection through above described process.
With Regards.

Can Hiv be transmitted through blood splatter ?

Yesterday I interrupted a fight and got in contact with a man whose nose started bleeding. I handed him a tissue and tried not to get in contact with the blood but a few minutes later I realised I had a blood stain on my shirt as well as a few splatters on my arm, hand and face. (the splatters on my face were very small like two millimetres). I washed my face and hands, but I'm a little bit hypochondriac and now I'm scared there might have been a risk of transmission.

Can HIV be spread through infected razor blades which left red scratches around the neck and partially popped pimples?

I am posting here because I have lost my peace of mind since last week and am facing contradictory opinions in various forums. Please help me out. So a few days ago I went for a shave in a nearby salon. I am from India, the salons here not very clean but this one was okay. Now every time I go for a shave I check if the barber if using news blades, I forgot that day. He started shaving and felt slight pain on my partially popped pimple. He then opened the drawer and brought out a new blade (He was using a straight razor). I asked him if he had been shaving me so far with an old blade. He said NO. But I am not convinced. After I went home I noticed that there was a red scratch around my neck and the partially popped pimples. There was no visible blood but still I felt sick to my stomach thinking about this. Now assuming the person who shaved before me was HIV+ and his infected blood came in contact with the blade with which I was later shaved I have the following questions -

1) I was given a shave approximately 40/50 seconds after the earlier guy. Does HIV survive for 1 minute in open air? I didn't notice if the earlier blade was in open air, kept in a jar of water (Which I think was not), or washed. In that case does HIV virus go away after a wash and does it survive if kept in a small jar of water.

2) There was no visible blood on my face except for some red scratches around my neck and partially popped pimples. The thing that I am worried about is the fact that may be the cut was so small that i didn't notice/see. I washed my face and re examined it after 1 hour but found to traces of blood/cut except for those red scratches I mentioned earlier. I am worried that may be the cut disappeared within this 1 hour because I thoroughly washed my face.

3) The next day I popped open my partially popped pimple to see if there was blood and found some puss and some red material, which looks like blood. Will this action of mine pose a problem?

Please help me out. I am student and have mane entrance exams in the next month. I am loosing sleep over this issue and can't study. I am constantly thinking that my life has been cut short due to my stupidity. I am in extreme mental anguish. Please answer my queries ASAP. Thank You.

HIV possible from razor?

Recently I was needing to shave my beard and I pulled a razor out from my drawer in my bathroom. During shaving, I accidentally nicked myself a few times, and I didn't think about it much at first. However, I had my brother over a few days ago and I found out he may have used one of the razors from the same drawer to shave. I don't personally know his HIV status, but say if he were to have HIV, used this blade, accidentally cut himself, stupidly put the blade back, and I had used it and nicked myself, what would be the chance of me contracting HIV (or any STDs in general, for that matter)? I know I sound paranoid, but I'm losing sleep over it and would like to know what my risk is. If I'm not at risk, then what makes this a different and lower risk than "sharing needles"? Any help is appreciated. Thank you.
