Dear customer,

Thank you for the question.

It is very unlikely and almost impossible that this will cause a transfer of HIV or HCV. When the blood comes out of the body and touches your hands the virus will likely die and will not be able to transmit the infection. The small wound after shaving will be closed by the body and there will be no access to the blood vessels in the body. So, there will be no transfer of HIV or HCV. You are safe and protected. You should not worry regarding this and can relax.

Take care.

The man was wounded with his hand and blood in his hand and then touched my head from the back by the superficial wounds

Dear customer,

Thank you for replying.

Yes, even in this case there is no risk for transfer of the infection. Just superficial touching will not transmit infection. The superficial wounds will be closed by the body and no transfer of the virus will occur. You can relax. You are safe and protected.

Take care.

Blood virus means touching a wound in my hand or a wound in the head does not move a small amount

Dera customer,

Thank you for replying.

Yes, just touching a wound will not move the virus. The wounds will be closed by a platelet plug or by a clot which will prevent the movement of the virus. You can relax and should not worry about transmission.

Take care.

I mean open superficial wound and contact with the blood of the patient little blood

Dear customer,

Thank you for replying.

Even though you think that the wound is open it will still be closed by the coagulating system of the body with platelet plug and a clot. So, contact with a little blood will not lead to transmission of the virus and you are protected and safe.

Take care.

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.
