Open cut and sweat

I would highly appreciate your help on the matter that bothers me.

I cut my finger with cooking foil two days ago. The cut started to heal but it is still a little bit reddish on the inside with no bleeding. Today i went to the gym and there was a guy who was using the running machine before me. I didn't put any band-aid on today and touched the equipment after him.

How concerned should I be about what happened today? Thank you in advance.


Can a used lancet from a diabetic transmit HIV to me? I was working at a restaurant, and a costumer came in that was diabetic. He took out his diabetic kit to test his blood sugar. He used his lancet to prick himself and then took his insulin. He then preceded to wrap his trash in a napkin and asked me to toss it for him. I reached for it and prick myself on his lancet and blood came out. I asked if he has anything and he said no that he was healthy other than being diabetic. But still I am worried if he was telling me the truth or not. Could he have transmitted HIV to me through a lancet. I research that a lancet isn't a needle that is hollow but a solid pin. Please help me I am unease right now in my mind.

Kissing and masturbatiion risks


I have two 'risk' scenarios I'm concerned about.

The first is from mutual masturbation. A guy wanked me and I'm not sure if he had precum on his hands from his own penis when he touched me. He rubbed the head of my penis with his fingers, including the tip (urethra). What is my risk from this?

The second is with a guy I know who has had bareback anal sex (insertive) and has never tested for any STI's. He tried to kiss me last week and slipped his tongue in my mouth twice. I had a very sore ulcer on the roof of my mouth. Just under two weeks later and I have had severe headaches, body aches, particularly my neck and shoulders, but going down to my arms and also in my wrist and hands. I don't feel any lymph nodes swollen but the pain moves from area to area and I've also had bad nausea, too. Is this ARS? I've not had any fever or rash.

many thanks!

tooth extraction and drink sharing

hello. please, i accidentally drunk from a glass of my friend, on the same day as i had tooth extraction (three stitches and still bit bleeding). it was not like from hand to hand, it was "sitting" on a table for a while, but very short - seconds to minutes, i just made a mistake and took hers instead of mine. I think hiv would die in water and if it is on the glass, then it would be only tiny amount and also would be incactive, but as there is real wound in my mouth, i would like to hear your opinion. I would not bother, but actually we did talk about our dental problems at that time - and about bleeding gums (i suppose gums usually bleed only when being washed by toothbrush, but... I am afraid.

Superficial cut on finger/knuckle area?

Hello, one day I was playing a game of pickup basketball in the gym, and someone scratched me (most likely with their fingernail) which caused a small scratch mark on my knuckle area on my finger. It was not big at all since I didn't even notice it until the game was over. It did have some blood, but not the dripping type of blood, just blood that covered the small indent of skin that got scraped off and kind of dried up over it. Like if you were to imagine someone's fingernail scraping a piece of your skin off and blood forms and fills the area, but not dripping. Now with that being said, during the game someone else also got scratched on his arm and was bleeding. If he were to have used his hands to wipe the blood, then touch the basketball, and then the basketball were to touch my cut area, would this pose any risk? And also, if my cut area had not fully dried up yet, and his blood were to touch my cut area, would that pose any risk either? Or is this fingernail scrape not deep enough to give access to my bloodstream? What is considered deep enough for access to the bloodstream?

Thank you!



Can HIV survive in Neosporin if infected blood has been dipped into it?

Blood on mouthpiece

After having a struggle with the doc, next visit i took the mouthpiece of the lung function tester in my mouth without checking for dirt. I worry what if s.o. put HIV Blood on it? Risk?
6 weeks after this i felt tired (like burnout).
Would you give me an advice? Thank you.

Toilet bowl

Yesterday I had to use a public toilet. While doing my business some water from the bowl splashed on my anus zone which is somewhat irritated and has small scratches. Could it be dangerous if the person who used the bathroom before me had HIV? I know you say HIV dies with the air but I don't know if it is the same in the water (water toilet in this case)… I should say I couldn't wash my anus zone until six hours later, I don't know if it is important. Thank you for your answer and I apologize if I have grammar errors (English is note my first language).
