Bled a little during the ride
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
You said if it was 30 sec or less to touching someone’s blood right after they got off ride I should get a test that’s scared me
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
My scratch was bleeding but not a lot and the original scratch was 8 hour prior
HIV and AIDS Expert: Dr Uzair, Doctor replied 1 month ago

just few drops does not matter. You do not need testing but if you get it it will give you reassurance as you look very anxious about this matter. I can just say that no risk from the scenario you described. Do not get scared test will be negative. That is all i can say and it is up to you now as i tell you same thing again and again.

Everytime I think I’m ok, I remember my scratch bleeding a little bit and the skin torn on top and remember the blood and how quickly they got out and I got in the ride and I’m worried that if it was infected it was too quick to be inactive and my anxiety starts again , the waiting time is going to kill me alone

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
