Q: 

22yr old just contracted hiv

A: Response from Dr. Pierone I believe that you should be able to live a normal or near normal lifespan with hiv infection. The pace of advances in hiv infection will only continue to quicken as time goes by. Some people believe that hiv should be treated right away, but the guidelines suggest waiting until CD4 count drops below 350 or so (unless there are symptoms).

If that happened to be a ''sports'' doctor, that''d be fine; but in my experience, most sports medicine physicians have little experience with hiv.

Q: 

I;m worried about having contracted hiv, please help.

A: Dear Mandeza: Peace.  And ouch.  Somehow washing your penis with multi-surface cleaner is the most disturbing part of your question.  I will address both. Let me address your question about hiv transmission first - your risk is relatively small as the amount of fluid to which you were exposed would be limited to that which adhered to your hand and was transfered to your condom, and only that amount that was exposed to your laceration placed you at risk.  I would recommend being tested to know your health status and for your own peace of mind, but as I said, the risk seems quite small. Regarding washing your penis with multi-surface cleaner, please be aware that many cleaners contain chemicals and/or abrasives that may in fact damage...
