while massaging my nail scratched the ladies massager;s thigh , is any chance that this will lead to any kind of infection such as hiv , although i could not see any blood coming out , but i am afraid some tiny particles might be present that time . i went to another massage parlour soon after that , but now i am worried ?pls help

Response from Ms. Southall

Hi This is not a way for HIV transmission to occur. There has to be blood present from both people. HIV transmission happens when there is a direct exchange of body fluid, this is why from your experience there was not a risk of HIV transmission.

Be well and stay safe, Shannon

Worried sick!! Please please help!!
