ear piercing
Oct 16, 2012

I recently got my ear piercing done at the local swap meet. The guy had a new pair of "sterile" ear rings to open. He attached the earrings to a gun and they were quickly attached on. The guy looked legit, he used gloves, alcohol, and cream and his store said professional ear piercing. I was just wondering how high the chance of me contracting HIV from this. I've been worried because I've had a fever, slightly sore throat, and sometimes i get out of breath.

Response from Mr. Chambers

I'm sorry I'm not qualified to answer transmission questions. My specialty is benefits and workplace issues.
