HI
I went to goodwill and touched couple item there. it is like shop place. I touch my mouth without washing my hand while having sore throat. I swallow some saliva down my throat. I am not sure if there is any blood on my hand. maybe it is my own imagination cuz if there is on my hand I would notice it . Am I at risk of getting infected with hiv ?

Hi there,

Thank you for your inquiry. From what we gather from the question, you were asking about the risk of HIV acquisition through casual contact with goodwill clothing.
From the information given, this scenario is determined to be no risk (transmission of HIV is not possible in the given scenario).

Recommendation: No need for HIV test with the scenario provided, refer to a physician for other health related questions.

Regards,
AIDS Vancouver Helpline/Online, Cody
