Question: Sir, my age -33 and I am a male. Sir, today my skin on hand touched the silencer of my bike(which was hot) and the skin burnt. There was no visible blood on the burnt area but it was reddish like color. After some time while I was returning with my bike some liquid (Don't know what is that) fell on that burnt area. My question is if that liquid is blood or any other body fluid which may be infected with HIV and it fell on my burnt skin immediately after coming out of the infected person's body. Am I having the risk of HIV infection in this way ??? Can HIV enter through burnt skin ??? Please help me.

Brief Answer:
unlikely to get infected by hiv

Detailed Answer:

Welcome to HealthcareMagic .

You are unlikely to get infected by HIV . Because you just had burnt reddish skin and there was no blood oozing from it and also no loss of skin layer.

Hiv won't enter intact burnt skin. if that another person have hiv then also you are not at risk of transmission.

If still you have any doubt then you may get hiv kit test after 3months or hiv rna test after 2weeks of exposure. It will give 100% result.

Hope I have answered your query . If any further queries are there I would love to help.

Hi, I got an RNA test 6 weeks after maybe being infected. It came out negative. I never had intercourse, or shared a needle. The reason I ask is because I used a vibrator, which I dont think was used, but I just wanted to be safe and get checked. Are RNA test ok to use?
