Mode Of Transmission Of HIV?
I want to ask, if there is a wire then the wire scratches someone who is infected with HIV and makes a small wound on that person, then after a few minutes the wire scratches someone who is not exposed to HIV to cause small scratches, does that person have HIV?
Hello Sugeng Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
HIV or Human Immunodeficiency Virus is a virus that can cause a person's immune system to become compromised so that the sufferer will be susceptible to infection.
In principle HIV transmission can occur through body fluids such as blood, sperm, vaginal fluid, and breast milk that is infected with HIV. However, HIV transmission does not occur through saliva, sweat, touch, kissing, mosquito bites or toilet marks. HIV transmission mainly comes from contact with body fluids such as blood and sperm. This can happen in a number of ways including:
Sexual intercourse, high-risk sexual intercourse can increase HIV infection. HIV infection can be transmitted through sexual contact from men to women and vice versa who are infected. In addition, same-sex relationships can also increase the risk of HIV infection. In addition to vaginal sex, anal or anal sex, and oral sex especially if the patient has wounds such as bleeding gums and canker sores can also increase the risk of contracting. Concomitant use of syringes, sharing of needles with infected people also have a high risk of contracting HIV. including using a tattoo with a used syringe can also increase the risk of HIV infection. Transmission from mother to fetus, transmission from mother to fetus can occur during the time the fetus is in the womb, at birth, and when the mother is breastfeeding. Blood transfusions, currently blood transfusions rarely cause HIV infection due to blood transfusion must be tested for eligibility. So that the recipient of the donor, this incident is increasingly rare because now the feasibility test is applied to donors who have a low risk of becoming infected with HIV. In this case, if the person is infected with HIV who has been tested before, and has a wound causing bleeding. If the blood enters the wounds of other people who are not infected, it can still be at risk of contracting or becoming infected with HIV. Because one way of transmission is through infected blood into the body of another person. However, to determine whether the other person is infected with HIV, it is necessary to have an HIV test. Then screening is done by taking a blood sample or rin to be examined in the laboratory. Before carrying out these examinations, you usually consult a doctor first about the risk of being infected with HIV.

Apart from this, it is better if after the incident the wound is cleaned immediately with running water and soap. In addition, if the wound is large enough due to wire friction, there is a risk of tetanus infection. Therefore it is also advisable to see a doctor, to be examined and to be given anti-tetanus drugs if needed.
