CUT on hte finger
Aug 8, 2003

I had a little cut/soar close to my finger nail, and I think some precum toutched it. What are the chances that I got infected with HIV?

Response from Dr. Wohl

My guess is that it is not impossible but I'd say the odds are greatly in your favor. If in doubt get tested in a 6 weeks or so.


doctor cant find a reason
help start now or wait ?
