OPEN WOUND
      #252962 - 11/06/10 02:56 PM

1.yesterday, i noticed that i had two little dots that were only like 5 times the size of this . each. and i saw there was a sliver of blood the length of this l and half as wide as this o; now what concerns me is that 16 hours after this, i scratched the wound and it only bled a little red dot and pretty much nothing else and that blood on my finger may have come from like a desk or table and was hiv+. what would be the risk if that sliver of blood i just described was someone else's hiv + blood, fresh and got on my wounds when they were open?
2. what if the wounds were open and they came into contact with a drop of blood a cm wide and long?
3.what about 4?
4.5?
5. i dont remember (for sure) if they were only the size of 5x this period, but would the answer change if they were half the size of this o
instead?
6.what if the dot(s) were on my shorts?

you do not need to worry about this. you will never get HIV from blood on a desk or table.
