Hi, I had 15 hrs old cut which was touched by a girl when i was distributing coin to poor children. I am worried as i could catch HIV if girl had blood or vaginal fluid in her hand which would have come in contact of cut on finger when she touched my finger.There was no visible blood but i am not sure. Or there may be some vaginal fluid on her hand which she might have transmit while touching cut on my hand. Kindly advice
Response from Dr. Hightow-Weidman
Hello there There is no way that this event could have resulted in HIV transmission. Transmission of HIV from a contaminated surface (such as the girls hand) would require massive exposure to blood or other infected liquid from prolonged period of time. Take care, LHW
