PLEASE answer the 3 ?s seperately. today, a friend of mine was showing me a paper and i felt his hand brush against my nose. now what concers me is that i didnt see if he had any cuts and dotn kno if he has hiv or not, and no boogers either; i wouldve felt jsut skin and nothing else if i touched the inside of my nose. but i also heard taht even if u have a cut and ur bleeding, the blood still starts to die because even though it's in the body, it's exposed to air.
1. is that true?
2.what would be the risk if a drop of hiv blood the size of this o went from his cut (if he had one) to the inside of my nose?
3. even if he was bleeding a minute (which he probably would have been if he had one), and a drop of hiv poz blood the size of this o got from his cut to the inside of my nose, is there still no risk? that's what i was told from a knowledgable hiv person.
