hiv transmission by nail scratches
Jun 9, 2012
shall H.I.V transmit if a healthy person accidentaly scratches an H.I.V infected person?
Response from Dr. Wohl
No. How would that happen? HIV does not enter under the finger nails or through skin. Still don't go around scratching people, okay? It is just not nice.
