    What are the risk for HIV positive Cum,Precum,Bloods contacted with an few hour to days open skin (Superficial cut like abrasions ).

    I read some articles stating that it did doesn’t post a risk unless the skin damage is deep that are accessible to the bloodstream to consider high risk & the virus is vulnerable to the external environment,hence died.

    Is the article statement clinically correct?

    Thanks

    Hi JayT,

    Based on occupational exposure guidelines, the risk of transmitting HIV from a proven HIV +ve patient through splash injury to broken skin is approximately 0.3%.

    Your risk in your described situation is negligible.

      In conclusion, When a person HIV infected semen/blood contacted Directly or indirectly on a abrasions skins is negligible?

      My Scenario (me & a guy)

      I have skin abrasions on my perineal raphe. We dry hump until he’s precum & semen is contacted my cotton pants, i wore pants without underwear while he only wore underwear. even the semen on my cotton pants touched my abrasions skin. No Risk of HIV transmission?

            Hi JayT,

            Do not let HIV Paranoia consume you. There is no risk at all for HIV transmission in your encounter.

              My HIV Ag & Ab test was Non Reactive. I tested on the 29th post exposure. Is it conclusive?

                  Dear Dr,

                  90 Days retest is not required?

                    Hi JayT,

                    Local testing guidelines do suggest a repeat tests at 90 days to pick up any initial false negatives. But the test that you have done is already pretty conclusive.

                    Regards

                      Dear Dr

                      Does Finger Prick & Venipuncture testing methods play a role for accuracy?

                        Hi JayT,

                        Depends on which test is performed. For example, finger prick blood would not be accurate for lab-run tests but for certain point of care tests it is sufficient.

                        Regards

                          Dear Dr,
                          I recently retested again 6 weeks with the same test methods (Ag/Ab via venipuncture). Came Back Non Reactive. Can it be double the conclusive from the 4th to the 6th week ?
