Open cuts and testing center
Feb 5, 2007
I just returned from a testing center, where an Ora Quick was performed, I tend to be germophobic in nature, so going to a doctor's office is never very settling. But, I now notice that I have a papercut-type cut on my thumb, which was there as I touched surfaces at the clinic: tables, door knob, etc. This is somewhat unsettling with my negative test... what could I have done to myself with open cut in that environment?! Thank you, I appreciate the feedback!

You don't get HIV from door knobs or tables (unless you're having unsafe sex or doing drugs on them).
