Please answer. Should I be worried?

Apr 29, 2012

Two girls opened a beer bottle for me. They both cut their fingers and I believe some blood got on the wrapper outside the bottle. I dont think my lips touched the blood. Not sure if any blood got into the beer. If blood did get in the beer and on the outside of the bottle. Am I at risk of catching hiv or any other disease?

Response from Ms. Southall

Hi Getting HIV through casual contact is not a risk. What you have described happened would not put you at risk for HIV transmission.

Be well and stay safe, Shannon

im afraid i have HIV
Can symptoms be as early as 4 days?
