are there any risks?
      #246558 - 07/14/09 10:15 PM

1. (since october, bt dint really wory till february but stopped 5th of may). I used to stck my hand in my back undr my shirt n scratch pimples like 200-800 times a day (no exaggerating). what would b the risk if there was hiv + blood in every one of these times?
2.(feb 27) went 2 use bathroom, put bookbag on ground n dint touch any part of me till 10-15 minutes later (blood probably would've dried). however, on march 21-25 i had night sweats. what's the risk? is this ARS?
3.(between march 10-14) saw cm of blood at bottom of cut n then bled. what if the blood was fresh n it was hiv + blood n it got in my wound? what if it was hiv + blood that cut/poked me n it was hiv + blood getting in my wound? what's the risk?
4.(march 18) got done jogging, saw a 1 inch wound on my thumb (wide and long) with blood in it. what's the risk if it was not mine but hiv + blood?
5.(march 31) saw a 1 inch in diameter spot of dried blood on my shorts n it wasn't mine. what's the risk if it was fresh n i touched it n it got into a wound?
before all this (around september) some jerk threw a dirty shirt at me. what if the shirt had blood and it got in a wound? what's the risk?
6.(june 26, july 4, july 13) i touched doorknobs and things (3 times each of the following days) then scratched my self. but wat if there was hiv + blood on my hand and i scratched a pimple off and the blood got in a wound? what's the risk if that happened?
I didn't do PEP for any of these because my mom won't let me (i'm only 16.5). is testing or PEP warranted? n if a 6,7,8,9, or 10 week test isn't definitive but extremely encouraging, what's the chance it changes from negative 2 positive?

Just because you change your username and ask the same question doesn't mean the facts change. I would suggest you talk to your mom about these irrational fears. Perhaps she can arrange some counseling for you so that you can explore these irrational health fears.

Thanks for the question. Well, as for you concern there are none reported incident of HIV transmission trough the method you have described. However, If your partner is HIV positive. However, i do not think you have any blood or fluid transfusions through open cut or wound . So you are safe from HIV.
