am i at risk?
Jul 18, 2007

today, i was walking in my backyard and one of my toes touched a rake. soon after, i found not an open wound but a bit of peeled skin (probably from the rake) and i'm worried about getting hiv from this. is transmission of hiv this way possible?

Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello,

Not unless you're fairly certain that your backyard rake has been barebacking Mr. Shovel or perhaps sexy Mr. Lawnmower.
