any hiv hep b,c risk
Expert:  DrDLove replied 2 years ago.
Hello from JustAnswer.
There is no risk from receiving a punch that makes you bleed if there are no other factors present.
For there to be any risk to you, your opponent would need to be bleeding. If your opponent was bleeding and that blood was able to get to the open wound on your chin, then there would be some risk, but the exact level of risk cannot be quantified.
But, the scenario that you describe would not entail any risk.

that was a quick punch to my chin i dont think i could get his blood because of the fast moving punch would you agree?
Expert:  DrDLove replied 2 years ago.
that would be correct.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
i am 100% risk free from the punch incident ?
Expert:  DrDLove replied 2 years ago.
If there was no bleeding from your opponent, then you are 100% risk free.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
like i said before it was quick punch to my chin so i dont think i got his blood do you agree?
Expert:  DrDLove replied 2 years ago.
I cannot know whether he had any bleeding beyond what you tell me. But from your description, there would typically not be any bleeding. If your description is accurate, then there would not be any risk.

i know for sure when he punch me the contact of his hands to my chin was less than 1 second so i am fine?
Expert:  DrDLove replied 2 years ago.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
i am sorry doc i just need my piece of mind so yes the contact of his fist that made me bleed to my chin was less than one second so i dont need to worry about hiv hep b,c ?
Expert:  DrDLove replied 2 years ago.
