Response from Dr. Frascino
Your chances of contracting HIV or hepatitis from being cut by a razor are remote at best. These viruses do not live very long outside the body; however, if you are worried, the option of getting an HIV test at the three-month mark is always open to you. Personally, I do not believe it is warranted.
Be well. Stay well.
