Re: HIV risk from a handshake with a tiny cut

hey there. thanks again for your reply. you have been a big help. but please, if you can answer me this, I will be happy. My main concern is that if this person did have a cut on his hand or finger and it came into contact with my cut.. supposing that this other person has blood on his wound, would his wound still be considered an environmental surface? that is my main question. if i can get by that and get a difinitive answer, i will be fine. in retrospect, i have toched many door knobs, bathroom door handles, etc and never worry about it, due to that not being a risk. its just that I had this small cut this time on my finger and that is what is freaking me out. if I hadnt had the cut, i wouldnt have even woried about. Jackie, to be honest with you.. the people who gave me my HIV tests in 2007, were HIV positive, i had my tests done at an HIV clinic. I shook hands with them, and allowed them to prick my finger. I never thought another thing about it. and I wouldnt have either this time, if I hadnt have had a cut. anyway, if you can help me with the part about whether or not the HIV being un infective on his hand, that is if he had any blood on his hand.. then I can move on. Thats all that is bothering me. i know I prob sound like a homophobe, but I am not and I do not mean any dissrespect towards anyone. thanks
