is it likely that you can get HIV(aids) from a very very small cut from a knife?

it didnt really go into my skin just kinda grazed it and bleed a little bit.

    only if the knife had fresh blood from a person infected with HIV on it when you cut yourself, or you held your cut onto the open wound of a person with HIV. clean it with antiseptic though to avoid infection

    lol No!Sure wish the GOV would spend some money on education & awareness on HIV-AIDs!!!The HIV virus doesn't last long in the air.U should be worried about the hep-c virus as it is alot more virulent~Just clean it & forget about it eh!!!oh,Use a CONDOM if & When U have SEX!!!

    Nope, it will only get infected if you don't treat it well.
