Resubmitted Per your request....You're the Greatest Dr. Bob...Ton's of anxiety, please help me out!

Apr 24, 2010


Very Quick question. Yesterday I shook hands with some co-workers. As I walked across the parking lot to my vehicle, I noticed a couple drops of blood on my finger. Thinking I maybe had a cut on my finger, I really quick sucked the blood off and noticed that I had no cuts or scrapes anywhere on my finger or hand. I have a small cut inside my cheek from when I was chewing gum and accidentally missed :-(. Don't know if I should be worried or even get tested. I've read no articles online, I came across your site and see that you are an expert in this field. Your response would be greatly appreciated! Thank you for your time. Much Respect.

Response from Dr. Frascino


"I don't know if I should be worried or even get tested." I would advise neither worry nor testing is warranted! Rather, peruse the information on this site, in its archives and on the related links, paying particular attention to exactly how HIV is and is not transmitted. You should find the information enlightening and encouraging.

Be well.

Dr. Bob
