Hi there,

From what I understand in your question, you're wondering if you can acquire HIV from a wire in your nose,that was first used on someone else. The answer to that is No, this situation is No Risk for the following reasons:

1) HIV is a delicate virus that cannot survive outside of the body. This means that once it's out of the body (like on the wire) it becomes damaged and inactivated and can no longer be passed on.

2) You would have to have a severe wound in your nose for there to be direct access to the bloodstream, such as a wound that needs immediate medical attention like stitches, or is gushing blood.

I hope this helped! please visit this website for transmission information: http://www.avert.org/hiv-transmission-prevention/how-you-get-hiv

Sincerely,
