Another nose picker
Jan 21, 2007

So I know that you are sick of the nose picking questions but I have yet another one for you. For starters, you will tell me to use klenex, done and done!!. so my question is, I am a nurse and several times after coming home i have found myself picking my nose ( i know.... wierd) my question is if i did have a tiny bit of blood on my finger what are the chances of cathing Hiv/Hep C after touching the mucous membranes in my nose. I am freaking out as I am ALWAYS tired and have a "funny head" as well as pain in my jaw that goes down my neck into my color bone and pains in my armpit and groin. I know you must be sick of this type of question and i wouldn't have even asked it if the other questions about nose picking had not had a 12 week test when they wrote you. Please answer Dr. Bob. I have a serious fear of getting HIV and thus am seeking another career. Thank you and God Bless You!!

Response from Dr. Frascino

This forum is dedicated to HIV-positive folks, particularly those who have concerns related to fatigue and/or anemia. Questions related to HIV transmission, prevention, safer sex, HIV testing and risk should be sent to Dr. Bob at his "Safe Sex and HIV Prevention" expert forum. Please resubmit your question there using the same title and add the phrase, "resubmitted form the Fatigue and Anemia Forum." Thank you.
