I have read through your post, are you asking if you are at any risk of infection from the bandage?
yes , will I have any risk from HIV infection from the bandage ? Thanks.
was the blood on the bandage wet?
it does not seemed like it
i know blood died in less than 30 second in dry air , and it was a very sunny date , but the problem is I am not sure if the bandate has been there for more than a minute
There is a low risk of HIV infection, but there is a higher risk of hepatitis B
You should get tested for both of these
eventhought I was not bleeding ?
when I pick up the bandate , it is not wet at all
Yes , even tough you were not bleeding
There is still a chance of infection
Because the virus might still have been alive and you can't be sure it did not get in your wound
i had a bandate on my wound
Was it the bandage you picked up?
I have 2 bandage on my finger
You picked up the bandage from the ground, and placed it on your wound?
I have my own bandage in my wound before i pick up the bandage
what did you do with the bandage when you picked it up?
put in the trash can
I had two bandage on my finger for double protection when I get a finger nail cut on Tuesday
You did not place it on your skin?
I see, I thought you placed it on your wound.You have almost no chance of any infection
You have virtually nothing to worry about
what I worry about I orginal have 2 bandate on my nail cut area to stanblise , u know like your finger nail top , u have to go around it , and I dropped one , and when i pick up the bandate , I was not sure if any healing cut area touch the bandate , and was not bandate is mine , was afaid there could be hiv undied blood on the bandate
i got the finger nail cut on tuesday , and i pick up the bandage , it is four days later , do i still have any risk
So the bandaid was not yours, and you placed it on the cut?
the bandaid I placed on my cut is mine , i PUT ITON BEFORE I WENT The park
I don't understand what you are saying
So what is the question?
my question is would I have any risk . This is the story . 8/1/2010, I had a finger nail cut, I put the bandaid on , and on 8/4/2010 , I always put 2 bandaid to stable the nail cut area , on 8/4/2010 , I went to the park with 2 bandaid on my finger , I dropped one bandaid , and there is still one bandaid on my finger nail cut . I pick up the bandaid on the park throw into the trash can because I thought it was mine . But now I am not sure . when I pick up that bandaid , I throw into trash can right away , I am just afraid if the bandaid I pick up was not mine , will I get in any risk , is this decrition better ?
I am sorry , I am not native english speaker makes u so confuse
There is very little risk, and I don't think you need to worry
It is ok, I understand now
do u think i need to go testing , because i have a bandate cover in my open wound
I don't think you need testing
and it was a healing cut
I don't think you need any testing
