please answer previous question - mouth exposure

Aug 4, 2011

Doctor, I sent a question yesterday and I am feeling quite anxious about it still. Regarding touching sanitary bin quite soon after someone else exited the bathroom (and touching bin with cut on my finger) as well as putting pen in my mouth with small cut on lip after pen had been on toilet paper dispenser. I don't mean to bug you but I am feeling quite anxious about the whole thing. Would be greatly appreciated if you reply especially in your busy schedule.

Thank you!

Response from Dr. Frascino


Your fears are irrational and completely unwarranted. The HIV-acquisition risk from the events described is nonexistent.
