HIV Sufferers Rub Against The Skin Until It Hurts, Can It Transmit HIV?
I am a practicing student, in treating poly patients B20, I forgot to use handscond, then the patient’s feet are dry, he has involuntary movements and then rubs my hands, until there are scars / scratches, can I get infected? What steps should be taken?
B20 or HIV / AIDS is a disease caused by infection with the HIV virus (human immunodeficiency virus). This disease infection can occur due to the following:
Risk sexual activity
Use of contaminated syringes or syringes
Related to the process of pregnancy, childbirth or breastfeeding
The HIV virus must be able to enter the bloodstream to replicate and infect someone, this generally occurs through the exchange of bodily fluids and therefore infection cannot occur through the skin if the skin is intact so it is very unlikely that you will be infected with the HIV virus if the skin (which rubs You) are intact.
However, the wound that you experience can be affected by bacterial infections due to hygiene factors and you should still get treatment in the form of wound care and antibiotic topical medication if needed. If you have doubts or worries about this or the injuries inflicted are serious enough, you should consult with your doctor directly to get the appropriate treatment.
