Can hiv be spread from hari trimmer?

Mar 31, 2013

Dear Sir, Can HIV be spread from hair trimmer?Please Answer. few days back i had an hair cut and got a nick(small cut) in my ear from Trimmer.Just 4-5 mints before that trimmer was used by another person.I dont know if he got a cut/ if he is hiv positive.

Do i have any hiv risk? I have no other risk factor. Please Reply.

Response from Mr. Glenn

There is no risk from what you're describing.

Contact with another person's HIV infected blood would have to be immediate and direct. It was not in your case.

Hope this helps!
