Can massage oil transmit HIV via small wound(scratch of a nail), im worrying about this, full of stress, even didn't eat, can't think of anyother.Help me?

The massage oil: Would have to have been put on by someone with an open wound that was actively washing in and out of that wound and your wound would have to be open as well, not just a scabbed scratch.

What : What you most likely have is fungal infection.It is in fact very difficult to treat. You have basically three options: 1. Topical treatment - not very effective with minimal side effects. 2. Oral tablet (lamisil) - effective but has moderate to severe side effects - mainly on the liver. You will need to take it once daily for about 3 months and watch your blood work to check for any rise in the liver enzymes which would be indicative of damage. 3. Laser treatment - very effective with minimal side effects but unfortunately is not covered by insurance. ...Read more
