Toothbrush in toilet

Sep 25, 2007

If someone rubbed my toothbrush around the toilet bowl and let me use it and i had mouth ulcers would i be at any risk of hiv infection? We were on holiday in uk the toilet would have been used only by us for 12 hours previous and was probably flushed about 4 times before bowl contact. The toilet would also have been flushed and then unused over night. I dont think i used the brush after contact. If i did would this change anything? This is really worrying me please help, dont know where to turn. Worried

Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello Worried,

The real question here should be why the hell would someone use your toothbrush to clean a toilet bowl??? That must have been one mean, nasty trick you picked up last night.

Your toothbrush may taste shitty, but as for an HIV-transmission risk, nah. No worries, OK?
