Thank you for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline with your enquiry. I will be more than glad to address your concerns.

HIV is not transmitted through superficial cuts. These cuts scab quickly, and also do not provide access to your bloodstream. For a cut to be a risk for acquiring HIV, it must be deep enough that it would require medical attention. Having a small cut on your finger (and considering you did not see any blood get on your hands) therefore does not put you at risk of acquiring HIV.


Sincerely

Ali
