How likely is it that if body fluids which contain high concentrations of hiv
(Semen, vaginal fluids, blood) contact a 5 to 6 day old finger cut, infect the
person? What if the body fluid was dry? What if the cut was 5 to 6 days old,
never blead after it was initially cut 5 to 6 days ago, but had some pinkish
or reddish tissue? Was that tissue the blood stream? or was it just another
layer of skin?
