|Fresh cut means blood has not been completely dried?
Jul 7, 2001
When you said that "fresh cut" does it mean that the bloods have not been dried? If I have a dry hand with a little creak, does it consider as a cut? Thanks
Response from Dr. Feinberg
What is at issue here is a way for HIV to gain access to your tissues and your bloodstream through the skin. If you have a crack in the skin that is completely dry, with the surface sealed off, then it is highly unlikely that you can contract HIV through that crack.
Very confused about HIV infection
