Only uneducated people fear it. Pins, lancets, rose thorns or broken glass does not transmit HIV.

My colleague is recently diagnosed  with hiv virus and is not on any treatment so his viral load might be very high and the worst i got poked seconds after he poked himself in office today.
i hope his viral load doesn't change anything.

Doesn't matter how high his viral load is, you never had an exposure.

is it possible if you can explain me the scientific reason behind hiv not transmitting this way?
Is it not enough blood on pin tip?
I mean there is a blood to blood contact immediately without drying of blood through pin and that is considered a risk according to cdc ?

It has to be a hollowcore needle injected in to a vein to even be risk.

hollowcore needle injected in vein thats correct even i know thats a risk.

but what about solid bore and if solid bore is not a risk then why is sharing  a lancet considered a risk?

I have similar question, what happens when a barber (in 3rd world country) uses an infected razor in a barber shop? What is the condition of infection.

Similarly, in 3rd world countries there are many syringes in garbage open area and children play there. Can an infected syringe cause problem?

Thanks,
