Hi there. I asked this to the Doctors but I'm literally dying for some advice asap here so would appreciate if you guys could help me out.
Question was as follows:
have severe cracking at the side of my lips - in fact I woke up this morning with dried blood all over the side of my mouth.
I was at a bar earlier ordering a drink and felt something wet hit the side of my mouth from the bar man's hand as he handed back my change. It made contact with exactly where all the dried blood was this morning. The bar was in a pretty rough part of town and the bar man looked pretty rough. Anyhow, I thought little of it until I got home and wiped the side of my mouth with tissue paper. To my surprise the cracks were still bleeding [at least I hope the residue was my blood] as I could continually press the paper on the cracks and see marks of fresh blood on them [i've been out and about all day and it's very cold where I live].
If this had been a spec of blood that hit this wound, would I be at risk for transmission of HIV or Hepatitis?
Many, many thanks Community
