|HEP AND HIV transmission?
Oct 13, 2008
I know this might be a silly question but my next door neighbour who has HIV has a cat and the cat came in our house, i was stroking it, and it scratched me!! is it likely that if it scratched the owner before it came in my house and scratched me that i could have caught hiv through the scratch or even HEP C?
Freaking out a bit!

No chance. Would not worry about this.
