Hiv virus stay how long in sharp instrument e.G razor blade?

Hiv virus stay how long in sharp instrument e.G razor blade?

Fragile virus: This virus will die very quickly out of the body. On the other hand, if you are using a sharp implement previously used by somebody with HIV disease (which is not smart), and it has fresh blood on it, this can well transmit HIV if you then cut yourself. This entire scenario is quite improbable. If you get HIV it is from sex or exchange of intimate body fluids like blood through shared needles. ...Read more

I went to a barber for shaving. He used a razor, but somehow I forgot to check whether he did change the blade or not. Can I be HIV infected ?

Barber: In general they do. In fact often they get a new razor and apply high heat to it in front of you (which is reassuring), which is likely to kill all the germs. However, I would make sure that that is done in the future. If the razor was used on a person with HIV before you of course there is a risk of getting the infection ...Read more
