Hi, Dr. Mo here with JA. Please let me review the information and I'll reply shortly.

Did he have any visible blood on his hands? Any cuts on him?

no blood

but 3 days old cut in his back finger was healed

If there was no blood and he washed his hands then the chance of Hep C transmission is zero.

what about hiv
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
he got 3 days cut almost healed and mine very small cut
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
he washed his hand twice

You cannot transmit HIV in that fashion.

That's a healed cut and so the chance of transmission of any disease is zero.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
my cut was due biting lips it was 3 hours before barber and his cut almost closed . 3 days was . was not bleeding at all . and was very dry

Your cut is nearly completely healed. If his was 3 days ago then there is no concern.

Yes, you are safe to resume sex with your wife without any protection.
