Killard why it is not possible to get HIV from blood of others directly into your hand even with small cut but not actively bleeding . Give reasoning ?

In brief: Well,

The number of viral particles in the blood of a person with full blown aids is relatively low per a small unit of blood volume say 1ml when compared the hepatitis b.
That means that repetitive exposure is needed for having the bad luck to get infected. But if concerned, never have unprotected sex and if you use fingering put some latex gloves on your hand too!

In brief: Fibrin seal

You'd be amazed how well your body seals off a cut as it stops bleeding.
No virus is going to get through, any more than it can get through a piece of paper.
