What Constitutes "Unbroken Skin"?
      #20720 - 08/12/01 02:00 PM

Let me ask a question.... what is the actual understanding about "unbroken" or "intact" skin? In other words, if an infected fluid were to contact skin that doesn't "appear" to have any cuts or sores on it, is there need for concern or testing? For example, one slightly nicks themselves shaving and one or two hours later the spot is not noticable and a fluid contacts it; or one scratches their skin but does not draw blood.... does there need to be actual blood-to-blood contact? And does it have to be fresh bleeding? Please respond with your thoughts.

Well, it's still better to be safe than sorry.

Hey Donnie,
It's too bad your parents didn't use safe sex about 9 months
before you were born!
and for the original poster:
No you aren't going to be infected that way.

No risk whatsoever.
