Can I get hiv from using a razor? I didn't bleed but got a red mark on skin. I bought a new bag of razors and forgot to check if they were open or no

Unlikely.: Without transfer through blood, it would be very difficult to acquire HIV in this manner, especially with presumably new razors.

The fact that the scratches are only a week old bodes well for their ultimate resolution. At this point the topical application of over-the-counter agents such as vitamin e oil or mederma may be helpful. In time the scratches likely will improve, though it may take months. ...Read more
