I took him to the hospital and he was died on the way to the hospital.when I reached the hospital I became soiled with his blood especially on my hands and legs from my theigh.Later I found a small skin peeling like wound on the outer region of my palm without any noticeable bleeding. After two weeks I came to know that the died persion had many exta-marietal relationships and on the risk of AIDS.Is there any possibility for me to get the attack of hiv.Pls give your valuable replay I am very much depressed after hearing this.So could u pls give some informations as fast as you can.

I am not qualified to answer medical or transmission questions. My specialty is benefits and workplace issues.

When in doubt, get tested.
