Please can you help. I was at a clinic and opened a door, the door handle felt a bit sharp. When I looked at my hand, I saw no blood or cuts, but I did feel a slight burning sensation after I put some deodarent on it. I know this sounds very silly of me, but this started to worry me. Before I opened the door, there was a few other people that opened the door about 2 minutes before me. My worry is, what if I had a very small bruise, cut, etc which I couldn't see, can I HIV be transmitted this way? The room was a bit cool and the lights were on.

Many, many thanks.
