Re: please help me anxiety killing me hiv question

Hi Don,

Personally, I've never heard an account of HIV transmission via skin. I've had my blood taken on numerous occasions, and from what I recall, most were wearing protective gloves, but while certainly unprofessional to some degree, I don't think that the lack of protective gloves poses any risk to you of acquiring HIV. I'm just another forum goer, but that's my advice.

Hope this helps.
