Possible Contracting HIV Disease?
Dear doctor r ndok whether the virus HIV, HBV, HCV can be transmitted through the use of comb u0026amp; hair cliper alternately? a few days ago I went to barbershop to get a haircut, which touched my scalp only a comb, for a hair cliper used without a comb comb that made me afraid of getting hurt, I already refused when I would be scraped using a razor because I was afraid of being hurt spruce up even using the hair cliper without the same comb combation at risk of injury to the skin, the afternoon in the shower I do not feel anything sore. bring sdri tools. usually I sll bw barbershop tools sdri (scissors, haircliper, combs, razors, brushes to clean the rest of the hair) so that makes some salon owners offended. the 3 viruses can be contagious via haircut at barbershop because of the alternating usage and I see that there are those that are not washed / replaced just after use only put on the desk kmd directly put on kai for the next customer so I bought the sdri u0026amp tool, bring each to babershop.thx
hello .. thanks for the question ..
based on circumstances like your experience, the virus infection can be transmitted when cutting hair in barbershop that is the habit of using hair cutting tools together or alternating with the same tool can allow a medium for spreading viral infections or other infections. barbershop is a common place visited by many people, for example if someone comes to cut hair to one of the barbershop and unknowingly that person has been infected or has a disease caused by one of the viruses as you mentioned (for example: HIV, HBV, or HCV) and at the time of cutting the hair to shave the wound even though only a small scratch and blood from the wound attached to the tool used and which will be used again for other barbershop customers who also allow injury, then from that incident the cause of transmission of viral infections occurs. you need to know, transmission of types of diseases caused by the virus is through body fluids such as blood, saliva, pregnancy for the mother and baby, sexual intercourse, and organ donation. in addition to being a medium for transmitting the virus, barbershop that does not guarantee cleanliness and quality of service can also cause infections of the skin to cause acne, transmission of head lice, and can also cause tetanus. the things you do by bringing your own equipment when going to barbershop is correct and your right to avoid disease transmission. Another thing that you need to pay attention to is not to be embarrassed or proud of bringing your own tools because you have a logical reason, if you cannot bring your own tools at least choose a barbershop that is guaranteed to be clean and work that makes you comfortable. if you feel or are anxious about being infected after the barbershop and if symptoms such as fever, nausea / vomiting, fatigue or disturbing your activities you should immediately consult a doctor or the nearest hospital to ensure your condition through physical examination, blood tests, and examinations other needed.
hopefully can help..
