[Question #754] Fresh cut

54 months ago
Hi I was in a massage parlour in Houston and I fingered a girl who hiv status unknown, the problem is that when I finish fingering I realized that my finger has clotted blood, not from her vagina but from my finger, I don't know if it happen before the act or in the act, then 2 days later a scab forms in my finger which made me worry. And what if it stopped bleeding right before the act, is it a risk. So please can you answer me if I had a risk.because if it had bleeded at that time, and came contact with vaginal fluid, will hiv enter, because I wouldn't worry about this but after 2 days a scab forms which worried me a lot, a scab forms when dermis is damaged, that what worried, and after 6 days, I had a swollen lymph node in my neck, no other parts involved, just my neck

This is the same question that was asked in question 738.   The answer will not change because you repeated the question.  Still no risk, still no need for testing.  For more detail please review the answer to question 738.  EWH---

Ok Doctor what if the blood stopped right before the act, so no bleeding coming out, that means HIV can enter through the the wound right, because blood is no longer coming out.

This too is a repetitive question.  Please see my answer to your question 741.  No need to repeat this.  EWH---

Further, the timing of when your bleeding stopped, or even whether or not it had stopped makes no difference.  The answer is the same.  Still no risk.  EWH---

Because if it had stopped right before the act, will HIV enter the wound

You asked for my assessment and answers,  I have given them repeatedly but you ask the same questions again and again.  You simply cannot accept the answers I give, can you?  This is the 3rd response to your question and therefore will be the last reply as part of this thread.  Further, I warn you that future repetitive questions will not be answered and your fees will not be refunded! 

HIV would not enter a surface wound.  Even if it was still bleeding, blood would be flowing OUT, not in.  Surface contamination on wounds does not effectively transmit HIV.  The virus must be injected deep into tissue.

This ends this thread.  EWH
