Response from Dr. Frascino
Exactly how does one "wali" down the street. Is it more like strutting or sashaying? Oh never mind. Why in the world would you think a lady's bag would have a syringe loaded with HIV-tainted blood poking out of it??? Should you get PEP? No, of course not, silly person. PEP is recommended for significant HIV exposures, not wali-ing whackos with hyper-active imaginations.
