Last week, I accompanied my friend to do a preoperative blood test. After the blood was drawn, I helped him hold the cotton swab and his arm. During this, his blood flow or splash onto the wound of my arm, there was obvious Blood of his on my wound, maybe several drops. Since I didn’t realize the HIV risk at the time, I didn’t clean and deal with the blood in time.
My wound was a needle stick wound that was left when I took a blood test the afternoon before,and my wound had passed 12 hours. But I did not pay attention to whether my wound was still bleeding at that time.
Yesterday, I learned that this friend's HIV test was positive, which put me into extreme fear. I was wondering if it was dangerous for my wound to come into contact with his fresh blood.
Do I need to go for a HIV test? I have asked a doctor at the hospital. The doctor told me that this situation is very risky and requires me to check after 3 months. Is this true? if not, How much risk I real have?
Please help me, I'm really need help, I am now in a terrible fear and anxiety.
Wish God bless you and me.
