I nicked myself with my brothers razor.he used it 1hour before.whats the chance 1 out of 100 you can get hiv like this. the nick was so small on my neck.
Response from Dr. Wohl
Is your brother known to have HIV or are you just covering your bases? Regardless, sharing a razor, even with a nick, does not lead to transmission of this virus. This goes to show how difficult it is to transmit HIV non-sexually. So I lay the odds at zero out of 100.
