No: If you did not contact blood or opim (other potentially infectious material), then contact with a chronic disease carrier (hiv, hepatitis, etc.) should not be a problem. Ideally you washed your hands with soap & water when noticed for basic hygiene reasons, but no increased transmission risk. ...Read more

Need to know if you would be contracted with HIV if a gay with a deep puncture wound in his finger touches your face?

Need to know if you would be contracted with HIV if a gay with a deep puncture wound in his finger touches your face?

Highly unlikely: Although nothing is impossible, this comes close. If a patient with HIV disease had an open bleeding wound and touched a cut on your face that was also fresh and open then there might be a possibility. This does not seem to have ever occurred, but there is always a potential. Hiv is transmitted sexually or by blood transfer by transfusion, needle sharing or organ transplant. ...Read more

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?

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

Unprotected oral sex Fresh anal fluid on fresh open blister half centimeter cycle on my finger Washed with so hot water after am I at hiv Risk?

Yes: Anytime that you have unprotected sexual contact you are at risk for HIV. If bodily fluids from your partner came intact with an open blister, it is possible that you could have had transmission of any number of STDs. If you are at all concerned that your partner may have an infection, I would recommend that both of you be tested. If you have regular unprotected sex you may want reassurance. ...Read more

I had a cuticle tear in one finger that come in contact with blood on surface while working in the lab, Any chance of contracting HIV/Hepatitis C?

Precautions: Lab workers are encouraged to use universal precautions such as gloves, and other protective gear to lower the risk of accidental exposure. An open wound directly exposed to bloody surfaces in the lab is just the sort of risk we seek to reduce. Your risk may still be low, but if you don't know the source's status, then you'll live with some uncertainty Post-exposure prophylaxis- consider. ...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.

I fingered an hiv positive woman deeply for 30mins&kissed her. Am I at risk?

No risk, no worries: HIV is rarely if ever transmitted by hand-genital contact (fingering etc) or by kissing. Without intercourse you are at little or no risk. Your extremely low risk is even lower if the infected woman is on treatment for her HIV. However, feel to be tested in a few weeks if you would like the additional reassurance of a negative test result. ...Read more

Here are some...: The described scenario should pose a next-to-zero odd to contract STD since exposing to it doesn't mean contract it and contracting it doesn't mean developing disease because contracting STDs resulting from breaking natural barriers-mucosa or skin and weakening humoral immune defense.

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.
