I work in public safety. I responded to a car crash where the victim had aids. I touched his arm without a glove. I did not notice any fresh blood or open cuts on him. I did not have any open cuts on my hands. Is there any risk factor for transmission? I'm concerned that I did not see any fresh or dried blood and I touched it with my bare hands.
At work I was using a scalpel and felt a sharp poke on my dorsal thumb, I was wearing sterile gloves on top of regular gloves (two barriers before skin). I immediately checked to see if my gloves were broken and if I was bleeding. Filling both gloves with water, there was no leak in either glove. I was not bleeding at all, and putting rubbing alcohol on my skin did not cause irritation, so I do not think my skin was broken. Patient was extremely low risk for HIV. Most of my colleagues told me that it was not an exposure, should I be worried?
I know there are more question about this but with a lot of factors, I only want to ask if a stranger in a bar burn me with a cigarette in my hand it's possible to get infected.
About a week ago I went out to a LGBT dance event. I was pretty drunk and decided to go to the bathroom. I usually squat and try to avoid sitting on the toilet seat before I go, but this night I was too drunk to do that. I also do not remember how the toilet seat looked (if it was wet, dirty, etc.). I had pretty bad chafing on my thighs from all the dancing and sat down on the toilet like that. Do I pose any risk in getting HIV or any other STI? I'm going in for my regular testing in less than a week, is it too early to detect HIV or STI's?
Thank you so much!
Can I get HIV and AIDS if I watch porn on my IPad?
I bite my nails a lot and I tore skin off a few days ago and the day after I gave my boyfriend a handjob and he got cum on my thumb. I washed it off 1-2 minutes later; the place where I tore the skin off at is small but it was red and I don't think it was healed, it kind of looked like it was open. After I washed it off the area bled a bit. My boyfriend assures me he doesn't have HIV, but we don't know until his test comes back. Am I at risk if he has HIV??

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?
