Can I catch HIV through a rose thorn ? Today I pricked myself

This answer was rated:

Can I catch HIV through a rose thorn ? Today I pricked myself while arranging my daughter Valentine flowers from her boyfriend.
Dr Uzair :

Hi. Welcome to JustAnswer. I shall try my best to assist you while you are corresponding with me.

Dr Uzair :

No, that has never been reported and is not possible, since a rose thorn does not have a lumen (hollow) to keep an inoculum (blood) and HIV can not be transmitted like this.

Customer: Thank you Doctor
Dr Uzair :

It is a pleasure.

Dr Uzair :

Please leave a positive rating for the service.

Dr Uzair :

Best wishes.
