Nail scratching ((HIV infection)) (HIV TRANSMISSION FROM FINGERNAIL SCRATCH, 2011)
Hi Dr. Robert,
I had sex with a lady that I don't know. I used a cndom, but my concern that she was scratching me with her fingernail, the scratch was in my arm about 1 cm. I am worried that there was a fluid that include HIV under her nail.
I have done pcr test after 22 days and the result was negative.
Please help me, what is the risk of getting HIV in my case?
I am so sceared please answer me urgently.
I will do my best for the donation
Your HIV-acquisition risk is essentially nonexistent, assuming the latex condom was used properly and did not fail (break). HIV is not transmitted via nail scratching. See link below.
