Response from Ms. Southall
Hi Getting HIV in this manner is not a viable way for HIV transmission to occur. HIV begins to die once it is outside of the body and is unable to infect. So if there were any blood on the razor and the person prior to you is living with HIV enough time elapsed for the risk to not be there. Also there would have to be a significant amount of blood on the razor.
So again, getting HIV through this manner is not possible.
Be well and stay safe, Shannon
