Stress Because Of Suspected HIV?
hello i am a nurse at a psychiatric hospital because of this job i am often asked questions about mental health, coincidentally i have a friend who is currently stressed because he thinks he has HIV he told me doing a risky hub on 24 dec 2019 yesterday and had checked himself by the doctor 2x even following my advice to do an HIV test that results appear april later, the problem here is he told me accidentally put his injured finger into the mouth of his younger brother who was sprue and he was frightened and a burden on his mind when he was HIV positive whether his sister would also be infected because I did not know the rest for the problem of transmission like this because from the literature that I read there is no explanation for this way of transmission, moreover my friend is only there 2 weeks after having a risky relationship u003cbr u003e u003cbr u003 approximately whether it will actually be infected
Hello Muh Rusfath, Thank you for the question.
Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is a virus that attacks the human immune system which causes the sufferer's body to not be able to fight off infections and other diseases. This infection is still one of the most feared infections especially since until now no treatment has been found to cure HIV infection. HIV can be transmitted through blood or bodily fluids (ejaculatory fluid, prejaculatory fluid, vaginal mucus, rectal mucus, and breast milk from HIV sufferers to others. Blood or body fluids must be in contact with mucous walls, injured body tissue, or injected directly into blood vessels (for transmission through blood) Mucosal walls are walls that produce mucus found in the mouth, rectum, vagina, and penis.This virus can be transmitted through the following ways:
having sexual relations with HIV sufferers without safety
receive transfusion of blood contaminated with HIV
sharing syringes with HIV sufferers, for example injecting drug users
mothers with HIV can transmit their babies during pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding
HIV is not transmitted in the way you say, considering there is no contact with blood or bodily fluids from sufferers. Please advise your friends to wait for the results of HIV tests. If you are still unsure of a good HIV test or want to get more information about HIV, encourage your friends to consult with voluntary counseling and testing (VCT) services at the hospital. In the future, your friend is recommended to avoid all actions that have the risk of causing HIV transmission.
I hope this helps.
