Sir, I was playing football with my friends.since my shoes got torn i was playing barefoot.While playing something cut my foot.I didn't pay attention to it but my friend joked dat it may b a syringe and you will get aids now. I am damn worried about it now. I can't focus on studies and my exams are coming near. please help me . The fear of hiv is taking a serious toll on my studies. Please reply as soon as possible.

Response from Dr. Wohl

Nice friend. Did you see a syringe? Do you play ball on a lot frequented by littering junkies? If no and no, I would be more worried about a bacterial infection or tetanus than HIV.


Still burning in my bladder.
