I went to a escort girl two days ago ,she was suffering from cold,had noticed swollen lymph node on her neck as well ,I went there for cuddling only ,I don’t had any kind of sex ,no kissing no oral ,am I at risk of acquiring hiv I had very little cut on my finger and I am not sure if she had scratched me or not and I don’t think she was bleeding ,Is it possible to get virus through air or not or through nail scratches should I get tested ?

Hi, and thanks for your question
HIV is not spread through air or through nail scratches. It is spread through blood and body fluids (semen, vaginal fluid and breastmilk). Therefore with what you have told me about your encounter, you are not at risk of HIV.
Our Know Your Chances charts can be really helpful in seeing how infections are spread and the chances for each partner

Let us know if this does not answer your question or if you have any more questions or concerns.
