shared a crack pipe, 3 days later showing HIV symptoms
Jan 8, 2014

Hi, I am very worried about possible contraction of HIV. I relapsed smoking crack with two guys who were HIV positive. I don't think I had cuts on my lips, but my gums were and are a bit inflamed. They bled later when I brushed. If there was blood on the crack pipe and I got it on my lips then it got into my mouth with saliva, would that pose a risk because my gums were swollen? 3 days later I have either swollen salivary glands or swollen lymph nodes in my neck.
