Can You Get Hiv From Finger Cut
Hiv infection is caused by a retrovirus....This retrovirus binds to CD4 cells (for the most part). You may detect the virus by several different methods.

Thirdly by pcr (polymerase chain reaction) which ...Read more
Can you get HIV from wiping a toilet seat with a cut on my finger. I had to wipe a toilet seat. My skin briefly touched the seat.
Can happen: The risk of contracting the aids virus from a needlestick with a contaminated needle is 3 in 1000. The risk that you ask about likely would be in that range for a single exposure. If the exposure time was prolonged or repeated, then the risk would be proportionately higher. If you have been exposed, you should see your doctor for serologic testing and follow-up. ...Read more

No: If he's doing this rather than attending to the cut, it's stopped bleeding and does not present a danger. The microbes are sealed by the fibrin covering. Congratulations on finding someone special -- love wisely and well, and I'm glad you're safety-conscious. ...Read more
I had a small cut on my finger & touched a glass with my teacher's blood on it. (it was part of biology class, we learned about blood) can I get hiv?
Inform school/family: Even if you are 18 and of legal age. Inform parents/teacher/doctors all or some you are. The exact scenario you describe is not well described but the literature on needle sticks tell us that HIV risk is about 3/1000 incidents. A important factor is whether HIV exists prior to this and thus for an exposure testing of all subjects is recommended. School, public health departments have guidelines. ...Read more
I wore long sports pants. A guy touched my bottom and anus area. Not sure if he has cuts on fingers. Do I get HIV if I wear that pants for the whole day?
No: No, but the concern here is that you have so much concern. Sometimes people get preoccupied about their health and worry that they will catch diseases that it interferes with their lives. Of course one has to be thoughtful and concerned about unprotected sexual contact. But when that concern spills over into these other areas it can be very helpful to speak with a mental health professional. ...Read more
HIV: This is possible, but unusual. The vaginal secretions contain virus and the virus can enter through breaks in the skin, but this would be a rare means of transmission. In medical settings it actually takes penetration of a needle through the skin into tissues for accidental transmission, although there has been a case in which a surgery got splashed in the eye with infected body fluids ; got hiv. ...Read more
Here are some...: A fresh cut with bleeding is like needling through whole thickness of skin where hiv viruses gain access into body leading to hiv infection as what happened to some surgeons; so does a cut for the finger with hiv-contaminated semen.

Can you get HIV if someone fingers you with a fresh scab (five hour old cut) on his finger just on the outside of your vagina for a few seconds?
Extremely unlikely: There's a lot of fear and anxiety regarding HIV. From what you describe, I would describe this activity as extremely low risk. First of all, your partner would have to be HIV positive, second they would have to be untreated, third there was no active bleeding, and finally this did not seem like a contact of real concern. It's always good to talk to your partner (s) before sex and your doc can help2 ...Read more

I know that SOMETHING happened and you're scared. Be brave. Get tested. ...Read more

No: This is the 21st century and you're an adult. You owe it to yourself to find a credible source about how HIV is really transmitted in the real world. Just as it is wrong to engage in unsafe practices, so it's a disservice to yourself and others to torment yourself wondering whether something safe has infected you. Best wishes. ...Read more

Can HIV get to your bloodstream threw finger poke from thumbtack? I poked my finger and a couple secounds later a few drops of blood came out!
Kinda, but: I've never heard of a thumb tack with hiv, so would not worry too much. Even a solid needle (like suture needle) can potentially have the virus on surface, but that goes into person. Tack doesn't and then sits around (in bulletin board) for long time. Many more things in life to worry about. Wash hands with soap and water. ...Read more
