Blood under nail
Mar 5, 2014

Dealing with an hiv patient my latex glove broke and some blood went on my thumb under my nail. I didn't have any open sore, cut or etc and I washed it within a couple of minutes. Is there any chance of any transmission?

Response from Dr. Henry

Extremely unlikely-would report to your employee health person for their advice based on local recommendations and known health status of the source patient. KH

Can neuropathy occur with undetectable viral load?
Atripla and blood clots
