Hello. I was walking barefoot in the park the other day and saw a bloody tissue lying on the ground (blood was very red, so I assume it was recent). I DID NOT touch the tissue, I walked around it, but I had blisters on my heels and now worry what if a person bled on the ground too...and it touched my blisters, would there be a risk for HIV? I did not see anyone near the area for at least 3-4 minutes. My blisters did not bleed, but they are sensitive a little to alcoholic wipes. Thank you. I am worried out of my mind because I am pregnant and do not want to hurt my baby. I walked barefoot because my feet are swollen. As I said, I did not touch the tissue, walked around it, but I am still worried Is there a risk? Thank you
hey please sorry for asking again but im really inquired !!! answer my question scientifically and in details please !!! im asking the same question that i have asked before and your answer was NO RISK but i forgot to tell you that i do not have Spleen since 23 years they took it off me when i was 4 years old and i understand that the Spleen is one of importants parts in Immune system
so will it be the same result NO RISK even if i dont have spleen in the The scenario mentioned before ? because superficial cuts start healing and forming barriers preventing viruses from accessing inside and this is one of the Immune system job , but when some one does not have the Speed , will the chance of acquiring HIV increase this way ? ..lets say the chance of acquiring HIV this way with a person who has Spleen is 1% ....will the chance increase to 15 or 20% if this person does not have the Spleen ?
and here is the scenario
i was sitting with a person in a closed shop " all windows were closed as well as the door which means the air outside was not coming in" and that person always does Sex with many women and he never uses condoms , i was holding my cat next to him"i was playing with my cat" and then my cat accidently scratched that person , he then screamed and said " oh your cat scratched me" it did him a small paper cut but he did not bleed and im pretty sure 100% that the nail of my cat got into his bloodstream , after like 10-12 seconds he said "LET THE CAT GET AWAY" he screamed on my cat and wanted to hit him , my cat got scared and sticked his nails in my pants and jumped away ...i felt my cat nails on my skin and i dont know if they broke my skin or not but most likely they broke it a bit > here are my question :
-the windows of shop and door were all closed so does that mean we were in a temperature room where HIV needs hours to die and not seconds or minutes ? how long can HIV live in this shop ?
- can i get HIV this way ? we all know that the nails of cats are covered with hair so once my cat scratched that person.. in half a second the nail got back to hide in that hair and im afraid there wasnt a sufficient Oxygen to kill off HIV
- after 10-20 seconds my cat sticked his nails in my pants and broke my skin a bit , i have readed that paper cut and small wounds do not provide direct acess to bloodstream and that the small wounds start healing and forming barriers preventing viruses from accessing inside and also the blood outside cannot reenter the bloodstream which means HIV would be killed by the air BUT !!!! how could air kill off hiv when my small wound is inside my pants ? there is no air inside !!!! and also lets say that my very small cut was inside pants ....what is your explanation about my pants rubbing the very small cut inside where the hiv outside the very small cut isnt exposed to oxygen because its inside clothes ..cus when people walk or do moves the pants rub a bit the skin , thats how i see it will that pose any risk ? ... please give me an answer !! was it at risk ?
Hi. Your website is very useful for people who are worried like me.
I have a question that needs your help. I eat an ice cream in the refrigerator for 2 hours, if the ice cream stick is bloody and I'm injured in my mouth, I'm at risk of hiv exposure.
I took the road and was shot in the face by unknown water. If the liquid is hiv blood or viral fluid, then I have a risk of hiv exposure.
Three months ago, i went to the blood lab for getting some of my blood work done.
However the mistake i made by taking my two small daughters there.
As i was talking to the receptionist.
My younger daughter who was 13 months of old at that time, took the blood cotton who was lying on the floor and had the blood in it.
she put that cotton and licked or sucked on that cotton.
As soon as i was done talking to the receptionist. i saw that and threw the cotton, washed her face and tongue..
Ever since that she has been exposed to the flew, bronchitis and finger blister in her index finger.
and she has got alot weaker in these 3 months..
What are the chances of her getting disease from that bloody cotton?
I am so much worried about it and afraid to take her for testing.
please tell me know if its something serious.. its killing me.
I visited a massage parlor 11days before and post massage, therapist asked me that i need a HJ but i denied it. Then i started suspecting the place, like if the therapist is infected with HIV/possible semen/blood could have present over bed which i ad laid down.
Also, i have few pimples on my back with dry state/black colored state could allowed virus to get inside.
So, i started thinking like what if therapist could have previous client semen/blood in her hand/oil used might capable of hosting a virus.'
I also suspect the therapist could intentionally infected through her saliva/vaginal/blood from her hand cut(assuming as when i turn on other side) pouring on my shoulder because im not trusting the place that i visited since they offering HJ service.
Symtoms i have:
1.After two days started feeling fever and continued for three days
2.My HIV fear begins on fifth day then on sixth day i wnt to clinic to check my BP was high and no fever its within body temperature 98.6f however i started feeling hot flashes on same day and next two days.
3.on fifth day, i started feeling gum/cheek pain on right side
However i started feeling hot flashes on same day and next two days.
3.on fifth day, i started feel mouth gum/cheek pain on right side and loosen mental stability upon observing these symptoms.
4.from 7th day onwards am having difficulty in GL(bowl moement as am no abe to free my stomach)
5.had three night sweats but not severe
6.lost weight upto 3.5kg
its been 12days, m unable to come out of the stress and weight loss making me so sad.
These symptoms mostly related to HIV infection.
Please advise is there any caase similar to mine/ should i be worried??
Since i have not done any sexual activities but still am suffering from symptoms.
feel like my life is gone and sometimes feel good when i see comments about raw vaginal/anus intercourse/mother to child can infection occur. But not sure about current infections.
I bruise my leg against someone's leg on a football match, and I had scratches on it (no bleeding) please am asking, assuming the other person also had scratches as a result of the the bruise am I at risk of hiv?
Today I touched a table that had fresh blood on from the previous person who sat their
My finger had a large cut am I at risk of hiv and hepatitis
I am extremely scared of HIV blood ,semen and etc, and my roommate seems to be a gay.I am so afraid that he will do some masturbate in the bathroom we share together and put his semen into my shampoo.Yesterday I used the shampoo and some water and foam flows into my eyes.Please tell me how long could the HIV seamen be alive in the shampoo and what kind of risk I am experiencing.Thank you
I was wonder that,lets hypothetically say, i showered in water which contained bodily fluids which could transmit HIV and that water comes from a small tank. Is there a risk of transmission? Im paranoid because ive directly exposed the water to my anus and i understand thats one route of transmission.
Few days before i visited the massage parlor for the first time in my life and took full body massage for 30 Mins. Post which i got the special service like Body to Body (Not full nude by massage therapist. She was waring the pant) and hand-job as well.
I am very much worried will it spread the HIV to me as i am not sure about the towel, Massage oil, Therapist hand(As her hand was rough and not sure about the open wound or cut in her hand) , Hygiene and the dress which they gave me during and after massage can spread the HIV.
Please do help me on the same.
