Hi Tio .. Thank you for the question given.

HIV is a virus that attacks the immune system of the sufferer. If a person is infected with this virus, their immune system will weaken so they are prone to infection. The ways of transmitting the HIV virus are through:

Use of syringes alternately Through sexual intercourse, whether oral, vaginal, or anal Contact with open wounds Blood transfusion from mother to baby through childbirth or breastfeeding Are you at risk of contracting the HIV virus or not depends on whether you come in contact with an open wound or a patient's blood Are there any open wounds on your hands, such as abrasions, lacerations, or other open wounds. If there is a wound, there is a greater risk of infection. For the better you still consult a doctor. So that the doctor can suggest an HIV examination or the doctor can provide prophylactic drugs. For the right results you can undergo several tests. Blood tests can be done at 1, 3, and 6 months after exposure.
