What Are The Chances Of Infection Through Hair Pins?

Hi, I was doing my hair and the hairdresser pricked her finger with a needle, she started bleeding and cleaned the wound. But i dont remember her cleaning the needle as she continued she pricked me with the same needle but i did not bleed or so i think.

Hi, dear
I have gone through your question. I can understand your concern.
There is very rare chance of infection spread by this way. Its almost negligible chance. The pin is solid needle. HIV virus dies within few minutes. It can not survive in the external environment. Chance is there with hollow needle but with solid needle chance is very low. SO don't worry about infection. just be relaxed.
Hope I have answered your question, if you have any doubts then contact me at bit.ly/Drsanghvihardik, I will be happy to answer you.
Thanks for using health care magic.
Wish you a very good health.
