Scared
      #224077 - 02/05/07 04:34 AM

Yesterday, my HIV+ uncle came over for a visit. While he was here, my kitten scratched him and drew blood a few minutes later, the kitten scratched me and also drew blood. I am scared to death, I know the likelihood is slim, but the fright still lingers. Can someone shed some light on this please?

HIv transmission doesn't take place after the virus as been exposed to outside environmental factors.

You did not have a risk.

When you bleed, you bleed "out" not "in"... No risk...
