HIV transmission through cuts
Hello,

I train in Judo, and 2 weeks ago, while we were doing ground fights, I noticed that I had a very small (2mm) scratch wound that was bearly deep, with almost no bleeding. At first I didn't care about it, but at the end of the fight, I noticed a similar wound on my partner (Also little bleeding). Now, as it is a contact sport, it is possible (even if unlikely) that the two wounds collided for a second or two. I am not sure if it is only paranoia, or if a real risk is there. I would be pleased to hear your feedback!

PS: 1/5 weeks later I got flue, I had some symtoms like wet cough etc.. I do not know if it has any relation with the incident.
