exposer to hiv infected blood on my hand

May 12, 2014

i have bin exposed to HIV infected blood on my hand and cleaned it it with alcohol. i am so worry that i am infected please send me an answer

Response from Mr. Glenn

Thanks for your question,

You can only get HIV if it gets inside your body. Getting a body fluid with HIV on top of your hand is not inside and under the skin. The only way for this to be risk is if you had a significant cut or wound on your hand. Otherwise, no risk at all.

Hope this helps,


Should I be concerned? Please help??
