HIV fear
« on: June 16, 2014, 11:39:44 PM »
So I was in my martial arts class tonight and the new guy bled on me. Not much a few dabs of blood on my forearm from a scratch on his hand. I have a few old cat scratches and stuff around it, as in 48-72 hours old scratches around were his blood was. On top of that he may have got a few dabs on the forearm of another training partner. Later on this other training partner brushed his forearm across my mouth on accident. Should I be worried about HIV exposure this way? I don't know this guy though he seems to be a very nice guy, he comes in with his SO/wife to work out and I hate to think that of them but I am really worried about this.

In our training there is a lot of hard contact to our arms so I am afriad I could have been exposed through a small abrasion or one of my older scratches or when the other training partner brushed his forearm across my mouth.

I don't fear HIV but even I'd be grossed out by all that! 

No, though, you can't get HIV that way.  You'd be the first person in history.

Yeah you would think being into martial arts I would be prepared to deal with a little blood, it didn't use to bother me but now it does. So the odds are fairly low of exposure that way? I mean I know it is a big if as to whether or not he even has anything.
