My son went to a barber for cutting only hair. After cutting hair for 20 minutes he used a old blade (without replacement of a new one) just for removing little amount of hair near ear and neck. And there was a scratch made by the blade. If the blade was used by HIV infected person, is there any chance of HIV infection of my son though 20 minutes have passed?
