My concern is about hepatitis c. I have been unfortunately pricked by allpin multiple times. I have tested in the past for HIV and hepatitis b but not hepatitis c. What's the risk.

Dear user. Thanks for the question. I can understand. HIV spread through Contact between broken skin, wounds, or mucous membranes and HIV-infected blood or blood-contaminated body fluids. Deep, open-mouth kissing if both partners have sores or bleeding gums and blood from the HIV-positive partner gets into the bloodstream of the HIV-negative partner. HIV is not spread through saliva. Take care.
