Or did you mean fresh HIV+ blood from someone who was HIV positive would need to be present on the needle before i pricked myself?
There would never be enough blood present on the surface area of a sewing needle to cause a risk, not to mention, the virus cannot remain active when exposed to the elements.
I've told you why this isn't an HIV concern. You can choose to accept that or not, there's nothing more anyone can add.
Can you please clarify one thing for me. I don't understand the last part of your answer at all. "secondly, if there wasn't fresh blood and a deep, significant wound on YOU, a "blood to blood" scenario isn't a concern."
What fresh blood are you talking about because there was fresh blood that came out of my finger when i accidentally pricked it! Or did you mean fresh HIV+ blood from someone who was HIV positive would need to be present on the needle before i pricked myself?
Okay, first of all, you need to stop reading the internet.
There was this quote in the article:
""All he said [was] he was sorry. He said, 'I used needles on you because I wanted you to be the same as me so that you can live with me and you won't leave me'," she said in a statement."
Note the use of the word "needleS". Also, he was handling syringes full of his own blood. I'm willing to bet he used more than a sewing needle.
Your situation is not even remotely similar. For one, there hasn't even been anyone who is HIV+ who could have even come in contact with the needle, secondly, if there wasn't fresh blood and a deep, significant wound on YOU, a "blood to blood" scenario isn't a concern.
Bottom line, this is an irrational worry. Put it behind you, and quit searching the web.
Thank you, i understand i had no risk. But just for future precautions and general knowledge, can you explain why the woman in the article got infected through a sewing needle? Because i have seen answers on medhelp that state even with blood present a sewing needle would be no risk since it would be exposed to oxygen but the sewing needle in the article must also have been exposed to air so how did she still get hiv?
