Cut while at work

Question

A tiny piece of glass got stuck in my finger while at work and now I'm worried that it could have been exposed to someone else's blood.. Maybe a HIV positive person blood .. I did start to bleed a lil bit not a lot just a dot of blood came out. . Please respond back I been worried . Am I in danger??

Answer

Thanks of your question,

There is no risk for HIV in what you're talking about. HIV can't live outside the human body, therefore the glass that got stuck in your finger wouldn't be able to infect you.

Hope this helps,
