Avatar f tn During sex, I inadvertently scratched his penis with my fingernail. It was only afterwards that we realized the scratch was deep enough to draw blood. What is the risk of contracting Hep C in this scenario?
Avatar m tn My main concern comes from the anal stimulation in that maybe she had some virus/bacteria on her hand from a previous guy and get fingernail may have rubbed the tissue opened and infected me with an std/sti.

Avatar m tn Can HIV live under your fingernail from masturbating someone else off then be transferred to a mucous membrane? Like the ears by a q tip?
Avatar f tn The other thing is, really wash your hands before checking the cervix. The vagina is one of the cleanest spots in the body, with specific flora that keep it healthy, and hands are able to be one of the most bacteria-laden parts of the body besides the anus, pretty much. Don't introduce foreign bacteria, viruses, fingernail dirt, sweat, funguses, yeasts, anything if you can help it. Better not to check the cervix at all than to give yourself an infection. Good luck!
Avatar m tn Hi, I have a question about HIV/AIDS and solo masturbation. Is it possible to come into contact with blood, etc. in the environment through touching things, and then have HIV/AIDS spread through masturbation after this? How long can HIV survive in the environment? Could it be preserved under a fingernail, etc.? I realize that I'm probably overly paranoid about this, but needed some reassurance. Thanks.

Avatar f tn Why is my fingernail on my middle finger starting to pull away from my skin and turn white and the bottom half is pitting and peeling? What could this be?
Avatar m tn Each of those have their own unique quirks....Innys can get a collection of lint, bacteria and things get in there and if not cleaned well can cause a toe jam type smelly stuff, anyway, if that collects long enough and added to that are all the skin cells that die everyday..a perfect breeding ground for bacteria to grow, then some kind of injury that created a SMALL break in the skin;....a fingernail scratch in the night..tiny scratch...
Avatar m tn HIV is unable to reproduce outside its living host (unlike many bacteria or fungi, which may do so under suitable conditions), except under laboratory conditions; therefore, it does not spread or maintain infectiousness outside its host.
Avatar f tn On friday (considering today is monsay) my boyfriend was fingering me and he accidentally slipped out and cut the area around my vagina with his fingernail. It bled really bad for a haft of hour maybe, and didn't bled again. I'm terrified, because this has never happened to me and i don't know what to do. It also burns really bad when I go to the bathroom.
Avatar m tn I have a lunch today and i found a piece of vegetables, where is a red(Probably the fingernail size) I don‘t know whether it is blood, I didn’t eat it. The vegetable taste a little wrong.I thrown it into the garbage box.

Avatar m tn Although the rash may be itchy, avoid scratching it because you may damage the skin, and allow bacteria to get in, leading to infection. You may also need topical and oral steroids which are available under prescription. Also wear cotton clothes. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps.
Avatar n tn I scratched it using my fingernails and i noticed the pimple rash had a blood (red but the blood did not went outside the body) and i checked the fingernail that i used there is no visible blood also... Questions: 1. If the technician have a dried blood in my car and my fingernail hit or touches the blood and used the same fingernail to scratch my pimple rash...Do you think this is hcv transmission? Higk Risk, Low Risk Or No Risk? Begging for your merciful answer..My anxiety is killing me.
Avatar m tn Could this be a type of fingernail material growing from the scalp? The physical consistency of this 'hair' strongly resembles that of a fingernail.

Avatar m tn So in other words, even if the worst case scenario is that there was something bad on a towel I directly came into contact with or there was something very nasty under her fingernail, it would not have lived long enough in the wild for me to contract it?
