Am I at risk for Hiv or hep c?

Jan 16, 2013

Hi Shannon You have anwsered a question for me a while back and I appreciate your wonderful advice. My question is someone bumped there small bleeding cut on my leg and I was wearing thin slacks but underneath I had razor burn non bleeding and cracked dry open skin does this put me at risk for Hiv c. Would testing be warranted? Thanks again!

Response from Ms. Southall

Hi I'm happy to hear that I have been able to give you peace of mind and can once again with this!

HIV transmission this way is not possible, from a simple answer of your slacks were a barrier to the brush from the other person.

Rest assured you are HIV free from this experience.

Be well and stay safe, Shannon
