Sore throat ?

In august I got an oral swab and it came back negative and just a couple weeks ago I got a cut from a customers plate and then I got water splashed on my eye from per soak where customers throw in there used silverware you guys said it was no risk but today I have sort of a small sore throat .. the soreness seems to be just around where the nasal opening is in the mouth and 1. If it were hiv would a get a bugger sore throat not just a small one and would there be more symptoms ? I tested negative in august and is there anyway they could have made a mistake ?

Needle poke with no blood drawn

Can you get HIV if you come in contact with an HIV+ needle without it causing you to bleed? I got scratched by a needle from a guy that was HIV+. It barely scratched the surface of my skin and didn't ever bleed. I washed my hands immediately. Can i still get HIV from this?



I was get tested for HIV. I haven't HIV virus. But after taking blood, the nurse touched my wound by accident. Can i get HIV by this way?

HIV transmission through shaving blades

I went to the barber yesterday and had a beard shave. After the shave I did not feel any cuts or bleeding. But there was a sore feeling on my upper lip on the left side. I asked him to apply after shave. But then I got scared that what if the blade was used and the razor too. After I got home i took a few wet tissues and pressed them greatly against my skin wherever it was shaved to see if any blood was present. I couldnt see any traces of blood. My question is,
1) Can HIV be transmitted to me in the scenario that I have said
2) Could it be that blood was not visible on tissue because of using after shave so that HIV may be transmitted
3) Can the HIV be spread through the razor (not the blade).

Your prompt response is highly appreciated. Thank you.

Stepped on a thumb tack

Hello. I was taking my dog out outside the apartment so I wore slippers with thin soles. When I came back to apartment I felt I sting under my foot. Apparently I stepped on a thumbtack. I know it's unlikely but what's the risk if there was any blood?

Questions about oral

Pls help, I had unprotected oral sex with a girl(gave and received), after that I noticed I had bruises on my penis, really scared, I went and did rapid antibody test with the girl the next day and we both came back negative. Do I need another testing at 12 weeks?

can i get HIV if I wore gloves while handling some blood of an hiv+ person.

i am a nurse and my chief asked me to put on a catheter of a ptient who was bleeding because he pulled out his previous catheter. i was wearing gloves all throughout but i ak just worried because i had a tiny abrasion on my skin. not necessarily an open wound but it could be chapped skin because it is dry. i was searing gloves 100% of the time anyway and washed my hands thoroughly after doing cath on his bleeding organ. can i get something out of that?

Mucosal membrane

I know that the eye is a mucosal membrane does that mean if an HIV positive person accidentally spat on my face and it had blood would I be at risk ? And how sure are you of this

Chances of getting infected to hiv

Recently I had beard trim in a saloon andwith that a small cut at my throat. Do you think there is a chance of getting infected to hiv


Had protected sex with proper codom usage , worried about vaginal secrtions being on hand/finger followed by anal fingering me ( approx 30 sec. ) after she was touching her self ,note that she rubbed cream on her hand before fingering .
Will this secretions on finger If carried HIV withstand 30 seconds in air and cream/lotion rubbing before coming contact with anal , not sure if there was cuts in anal region but assume worst case as if there were unnoticable minor cuts .
