Hello
Please I need your answer!
I am a girl which I don`t know yet my status about hiv, I`m so worried and anxious that I get infected by hiv from the doctor in hospital when I went to do the hiv test before two an a half months. There was no hygiene, I saw in the desk used rapid test.
He touched a bottle with a pippete in top of her to draw my blood and to put it in the rapid test. She wasn`t as usually pippets that i saw in internet she had a body like bottle and a pippete in top of her. Pippete was new but her body or her bottle was the same for all patients. And I suspect that this bottle was infected with hiv from hiv parients who goes there and was not disinfected. He touched her before I went there for other patients, her winding paper(packing), with wet hands from cotton ball with solution and hiv blood on it you know what I mean ( soaked cotton ball in solution and hiv blood on it after he pierced patients finger).
I saw that this bottle which I think she was infected was set in a close box before he thouched her to use it to draw my blood where I think she couldn`t be dryed completely even if her winding paper was infected with hiv. After he touched her he touched my finger all around to look where to pierce him and then he pierced him so blood came out and came in contact with my skin finger where he touched her before, so I`m so anxious but I can`t do the hiv test here in my country before three months because here has no tests which could detect earlier.
So today my little sister accidently put her fingers in my eye( she touched my eye inside) and then immediately put her fingers in her mouth.
If I`m infected can I infect her in this way from my eye to her mouth?
Please I`m so anxious help me, and sorry for my english I hope you could understand me

Hi there and thank you for reaching out to AIDS Vancouver with your questions! We're happy to help.

I'm happy to let you know that both you and your sister have No Risk of HIV infection from the situation you described.

HIV cannot survive outside of the body. What this means is that as soon as bodily fluids are outside of the body, any virus in them becomes inactivated and damaged and can no longer be passed on. This means that any bodily fluids that are on your hands, in the liquid you described, or on your fingers/the doctors fingers. additionally, your sister wouldn't get it from putting her fingers in her mouth, and the eye doesn't have HIV virus in it.

So essentially, there's no risk in the situation you described!
