Recently found out my mother has aids, we have shared razors in the past, but not like right after each other, like maybe a day or more. I always rinse off razors before i use them.I read that the aids virus dies once it exposed to air should i get checked?

Response from Dr. McGovern

Please refer your HIV questions to the HIV forum.

However, in general, it would be reasonable to get a one time test for HIV, HCV, and HBV. I suspect your results will be fine - but it is best to check.

Confused, please offer your advice
