i dont know if anyone is infected with anything but it is possible i guess

could i have been infected with HIV or HEPATITS or anything else if there was blood on the razor

i would really appreciate a responce.

thank you doctor you are wonderful -ally

Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello Ally,

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.

Dr. Bob
