Please Help me! Accident and I am scared to death!
« on: July 06, 2008, 05:32:18 AM »
Dear Experts,

First off,I would lime to express my gratitude to all members here for their kindness and wide knowledge about HIV transmission.

I have read the Transmission Lesson for many times, but my scenario is quite complicated.Please take a look and assess the risk for me.

I am the final year student. We always put our blades separately in the box and we can identify the blades by the colors. So we can not mistake the blades.

Yesterday, we had one guest and he stayed overnight. This morning, I woke up and shaved as usual. I was shaving and listening to the radio,so I was not really concentrating on shaving. Accidentally, I made my wound bleed very much(The wound was a pimple on the neck and I razed it and made it bleed, there were much blood from the broken wound) and I also cut my ear bleeding a little.

When I finished shaving and came back to the living room. My roommates told me that the guest had used my blade. The guest had asked to borrowed the blades from my roommates but no one agreed. So that guy used my blade. ( he took my blade when I was taking shower), I was very scared, because I shaved and cut my wound(pimple) bleeding.

MY question is: Am I at risk of HIV infection from sharing razor with that guy?Assuming hat he is poz. Could HIV live on the razor for 30 seconds?The scenario is that that guy shaved my blade and made his face bleed, there were some infected blood left on the razor, after 30 seconds,I used that razor and made my wound&ear bleed. I never rinse the blade with water before shaving.

 PLS help me!I am scared to death. Accident and accident again,I cant take it.

Thanks in advance! Experts!

Guess what mate, I've just been doing some research and I've come to realise that you've been here with at least five other accounts.

Well, no more. I'm banning you in all your guises.

HIV is certainly character-building. It's made me see all of the shallow things we cling to, like ego and vanity. Of course, I'd rather have a few more T-cells and a little less character. Randy Shilts
