Blood that contacts your intact skin such as your hands is extremely low risk to transmit HIV. In the absence of an open wound or weeping dermatitis, no post exposure prophylaxis is recommended other than washing with soap and water. Because the incubation period to detect infection is at least 10-14 days, you should wait do a confirmatory test at 4-6 wks, and again at 12 wks. Extremely low risk.
