Response from Ms. Southall

Hi You cannot get HIV this way! HIV transmission occurs when there is a direct exchange of body fluid. HIV begins to die once it is outside of the body and definitely would have been dead when you were shaved.

The symptoms that you are experiencing are from anxiety or you may just have the flu but it is not HIV from being shaved!

Be well and stay safe, Shannon
