Can HIV be transmitted through razor cut on face?
Nothing to worry.
Thanks for your query at HCM.
I understand your concern and situation.
I would advise you not to worry. It is generally advised to you the razor blade used by other people as there is small risk of infections like HBsAg, HCV, HIV etc. But I would like to tell you that the risk is extremely low. As these viruses are labile and do not survive outside the body and die soon. If there was no fresh blood on the razor I see no reason to worry. I would recommend you no testing but in future ensure proper razor usage. Keep your cut area clean and apply antiseptic for few days.
Hope I answered your query.
Rating and review will be appreciated.
