hiv infection from razor

Jun 10, 2012

Recently, i got a shave at a barber's and i suspect he hadnt changed the razor. there was no visible blood on the razor though and the last customer was 20 mins ago. also i did not cut myself and have no broken skin. should i be worried?

Response from Ms. Southall

Hi No reason to worry! HIV dies once it is outside of the body and since there were no cuts or broken skin on you then there were no ways for HIV transmission to occur.

You are fine! Be well and stay safe, Shannon

Please put my mind at ease
