Hiv is transmitted on contact of infected body fluid of a person with your blood ...if barber is infected and his blood ooze on his palms have come in contact with your cuts having blood ooze after shaving then chance of transmission is 0.03%...you need to know first whether barber is HIV positive or not...else stop thinking or go for post exposure prophylaxis for HIV
