My 8 year old daughter was playing in the woods. She found an insulin syringe. She pricked her finger and scraped the side of her hand, drawing blood. We washed with antibacterial soap, perioxide and used clorox wipes. We went immediately to the dr and they administred blood tests. What are the chances she can get HIV?

HIV is known to be very sensitive to fluctuations in temperature and moisture. Typically, the virus can only survive outside of the body for a few hours. CDC studies show that drying even high concentrations of the virus can virtually eliminate any infectious particles within hours. In addition, insulin syringes are not typically used to aspirate blood so there should not be any blood within the hollow needle bore.

In conclusion, there is an extremely low chance she may become infected with HIV but she should still be tested for HIV by her pediatrician.
