What is Unbroken Skin?
      #27418 - 01/26/02 05:43 PM

Experts say that HIV cannot pass through healthy, intact skin. How is that defined? IOW, if someone shaves, slightly "nicks" themselves and then two hours later (after bleeding has stopped) is exposed to potentially infectious fluid... is this called healthy, intact skin? Please answer. I need reassurance.

Healthy, intact skin means just that. Skin that isn't open by way of a cut, rash, etc. HOWEVER....HIV also cannot be transmitted thru cuts that have stopped bleeding or a scab.

If people got infected through nicks from shaving, this disease would be more wide spread than it is.

So you are saying some cuts hiv likes and others it does not. Come on cuts are cuts! And your right if hiv caused aids and infection ocurred through cuts many more would be dead and the syndrome would have crossed over from the initial groups, which it has not, despite the aids propaganda that insists that heterosexuals and lesbians get aids. The whole theory starts to fall apart there.
