Hiv from a cut (handshake)
      05/21/12 08:43 PM

The other day I was having a yard sale. While I was showing a lady and item our hands touched. When I looked at her finger I noticed she had a band aid on . Assuming there was blood on the band aid or if it moved and exposed her cut would there be a risk if her blood got into a small scrape or popped pimple on my arm. If not why? I washed my hand and arm about 10 min after this happened.
