A very different bite !!!

Hi everyone, I'm from Vietnam !

(sorry for my bad English)

I've read many Q&A in this forum and many people said that there is no risk of being infected by a bite.
However, my situation is quite different!

I was bited by a robber months ago. The wound is not really serious and I did't see any bleeding blood. However, I see some transparent fluid (like water) come out of the wound. I was so silly that I did't wash it away by water.
Besides, I feel some salvia on the wound and the trauma changed into the black-purple .

After a day, the fluid became solid on my wound (like eczma (eczema))

So I wander:

1. Is that fluid like blood, acting as a medium for contracting HIV

2. Sbd said that there must be a significant ( or visible ) amount of blood to contract HIV. So is there anybody can tell me how much is "significant". Can u show me a picture, it'll be better to understand.

Thanks in advance.

1. No

2. There would have to be at least the amount of blood in this picture:

Can you tell me what that fluid is ?? Is it some kind of blood components ????
I don't think it's salvia because it'd become solid.

I'm not nervous now. I just want to know what that FLUID is.
Is it the fat, or moisture of the skin ????

This is an HIV specific forum and you do not have an HIV concern.

It's so foolish to ask you again like this, but what if it's blood on my wound.
After getting bitten, the fluid came out and blood afterward ?????

You had no HIV risk.  You should, however been seen by a doctor, human bites can cause nasty bacterial infections, and you may require some treatment, esocially since you didn't properly clean it our after.

Again, no risk for HIV.
