    hiv from scratch
    An_252822 posted:
    I was at an adult hotel and while in the hot tub I was approach by a male (by the way I am a male). We were nude in the hot tub. I got out sat on the edge and let my foot dangle in the water. While my foot was there the guy grabbed my foot and caressed it. In the process he cut my foot with wat appears to be his nail.I did not noticed the cut till the morning after and went back in the water after he left. Should I be worried that I could get hiv from this incident or with the open cut in the hot tub. Very worried.

    Just some additional information. There was blood present on the scrape in the morning.

    There is no need to be worried and no risk here. The only blood present from this event was yours.
