touched blood

Aug 2, 2000

recently as a joke I ran my hand down my sister in law's leg right after washing my hands with water. she had shaved earlier in the morning and cut herself. there was blood on her leg that was dried from what I could tell after the fact and no blood appeared to be on my hand after the fact. I am trying to not be a freak about this, but is this something to be concerned about? from your answers it seems the answer is no but I am unsure because this is direct contact with blood?

Response from Mr. Kull

You should definitely trust your instincts. I do not think that you should be concerned about getting HIV or anything else from what you did. But you are obviously concerned about something. What might it be? Does it have something to do with touching your sister in law's leg? Just a hunch.
