Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello, Worried Mannnnnnn....

The fingernail scratch from the HIV-positive fellow was "4 inches deep"??? WOWZA. Was this guy part werewolf or did he just have Barbra Streisand nails??? No matter. Your HIV-acquisition risk from getting scratched by an HIVer is nonexistent. See link below. Neither worry nor HIV testing is warranted.

Thanks for your support of The Robert James Frascino AIDS Foundation ( It's warmly appreciated. In return I'm sending you my good-luck/good-health karma that you are now and will forever be HIV free.

Be well.

Dr. Bob
