Apr 7, 2012

Dear expert. I went to the hospital for blood and when it's completed, the blood still flow out from the pinhole, I use my finger press the bleed pinhole,before this my fingers had contact with the hospital's lab test paper, door handles and other items, and i am sure i don't touch any if these items contact with AIDS patients, id the virus will stick to my fingers, and then as I pressed my pinhole to infected?

Response from Ms. Southall

Hi, You cannot get HIV from your experience. There has to be a direct exchange of body fluid for HIV transmission to occur. This scenario that you have described did not allow that to happen. You are safe and fine.

Be well and stay safe, Shannon
