my concern is high

hi all

i been to a barber shop . he did some beard trimming by a raisor , then he puncture some pimple in my neck and there were slight bleeding, then wiped the blood with a towel , which didn't looking clean which he used to put on you when he shave you, the towel was not a white color one, so you cann't see if there were a blood on it or not, i asked him about that, then he started saying "clean , clean" and my customers are clean .

my quesition: if there might have been some blood in that towel, and wiped againest my bleeding neck, is that arisk of HIV? .

Re: my concern is high

You would be at no risk of HIV. HIV cannot survive outside the body, so once exposed to air it dies, so if and thats a big if their was blood it would not be a risk to you, not to mention your pimple would not be deep enough anyway, so you have nothing to worry about mate.

Re: my concern is high

hi all
I agree that the virus will die once it is out side the host( which is the body of the infected person), but when it is out of the body but still in the blood, where the blood will save it for quite longer time.

thank you for being so patient with my queris

Re: my concern is high

It doesn't matter! You still can't catch HIV from a towel! In a million years, that would never, ever happen. You really need to find something else to be upset about.

As i said, its not a concern because the virus ( if their was any which is very unlikley ) would be dead buddy. Nothing you said will put you at risk at all, and i mean nothing. HIV can only be passed on via, unprotected sex, mother to child or sharing a IV needle.

Really your fine, no ifs buts or maybe's, your fine

Re: my concern is high

Reread Apollo's last reply to you about the ways the HIV has proven to be transmitted. You are perseverating anxiety-driven thoughts that are nothing more than myths about how HIV is transmitted. And if you already know that these questions are "far away" from reality, then your real issue is more related to mental health than education.

Re: my concern is high

sir
He said:
(((HIV can only be passed on via, unprotected sex, mother to child or sharing a IV needle)))

does this mean no any other way the virus could be transmitted eg kissing,saliva, wiping blood from a wound with contaminatd towel etc etc?

Re: my concern is high

Yes thats the only realistic way of getting HIV. Your situations will never pose any concern.
