I need your help so bad
      08/09/13 12:27 AM

I have a very serious question concerning HIV transmission.
I live in the Third World. Couple of days ago I had a shave in a barbershop. The barber used an old school razor on me. I didn't see him sterilized the razor or change it. He just used it and cut me in my chin two times. I could see some blood from these two cuts.
I will appreciate if you would answer my following questions:
1- Am I at risk of acquiring HIV. I mean if there was HIV blood on the razor which the barber used on me?
2- Should I test for this incidence?
3- How much time HIV virus can live outside its host?
Thank you so much.
