    Nervous

    I was in the store tonight and noticed during checkout that there was three different red stains on my fingers. I'm not sure if it was from the strawberries or if it was blood. It was dried. Now I'm nervous because I have open sores on my hands and I breast-feeding my son, should I be worried? Should I get tested for hiv?

    From this event? No; there is no need for testing.

      • You should test as their might be a risk of transmitting it. As long as. the blood is dried and that it hadn't made direct contact with the wound then you will be fine :)!

        adam; this is incorrect. Even IF this was blood AND it came from an infected individual, there is absolutely no risk of transmission and no need for testing.
