HIV / AIDS?
In the morning 2 days ago my hand was injured by a small incision on my finger because of the guitar string and today my finger touched my finger touched the hand or arm and I am not sure whether it was touched by the wound or not I did not see any blood on my wound or fluids whether I would be infected with HIV with the same I have a male friend, he told me yesterday that he was related to a girl he just met. In the club I was afraid he was infected with HIV. Yesterday I ate meatballs with my friend, he took my meatball soup many times automatically there was saliva coming out. Can I be infected with HIV too?
Hi Steven, thanks for the question for HealthReplies.com
HIV or human immunodeficiency virus is a virus that can be spread through contact with skin wounds or mucosa with the body fluids of a person with HIV infection. Body fluids that have the potential to spread this virus are blood, vaginal fluids, ejaculate fluids, semen, and anal fluid.
In your case, you need to ascertain whether the person whose wound you touch has HIV or not, whether there is blood on the wound of the person you touch, whether your wound is bleeding. If all the answers are YES, then you have a very low chance of being infected with HIV, even though it is very unlikely. If the answer to any of these questions is NO, then it is almost impossible for you to have contracted HIV. Meanwhile, eating from the same plate, using the same cutlery or drinking utensils, sharing food, using the shared toilet, kissing, hugging someone who has HIV will not cause you to get HIV.
If you are in doubt, you can have an HIV test approximately 4 weeks after exposure (depending on what tests are available). Consult with your doctor to do this HIV test.
