Cuts with nail vendors scissors unsterilize

Sep 28, 2012

Hi Dr glenn thanks for answering ♍γ̲̣̣̥ ??,but ♍γ̲̣̣̥ fear is that it was a nail vendor that do cutting of nails as bussiness in this part of the world and most time their scissors are always unsterilize. Am worried cos he has used it on a lot of persons since its a public thing. ♍γ̲̣̣̥ fear now is that they don't sterilise their instrument b4 using it on the other. Two weeks later i started experiencing some symptoms like sore throath, slight head ache . Plz what is the possibility of contracting hiv from that kind of scissors. Thank u

Response from Mr. Glenn

Doesn't matter whether they sterilize it or not.. THERE'S NO RISK FROM THIS SITUATION.
