Risk Shaking Hand
Oct 31, 2013
Hi I would like to know if I have risk of contracting HIV. I have an eczema in the back of my hand (skin wound, not bleeding), and I shaked my hand to a stranger (greeting), I did not notice if he was bleeding or not and i dont know if he touch my wound (eczema), so Should I have a test? Sorry for my english but it is not my native language. Thanks in advance
Response from Mr. Glenn
There is no reason to think that there was any risk for HIV. At all. Unless you have open wounds on your hands AND the other person is obviously bleeding.
Hope that helps,
