HIV Transmission

Recently, I have just touched some objects that might have HIV virus on them, My hands have no cuts on them just two that are scabbed over already. I am not sure weather there was bodily fluids on the objects, so I am really concerned. I would really like to know if I could get HIV/AIDS? The objects were magazines, and pieces of paper.

Vance correctly told you you did not have a risk. You do not need to waste time, money, or other resources testing over the situation you described. Be well.
