PLEASE i am worried sick
      04/20/03 06:34 PM

my question is this, i know that HIV is found in blood and that it cannot survive long outside the human body but could HIV infected blood remain infectious and therefore have the potential to be transmitted to an uninfected person in a substance like a lipgloss? because i used a lipgloss several times recently that did not belong to me and now i am worried that if someone used it before me who was HIV+ and got their infected blood in it through something like a cut/sore on their lip, that i could have become infected through using it as i also have a small cut/sore on my lip. can anyone tell me if this is possible. also shortly afterward when i could possibly still have had the lipgloss on my fingers, my fingers came into contact with my vagina and the area around it which is quite sore at the moment, i don't think there were any cuts there, but if there were? i would really appreciate your opinion on this as i am very very worried and am finding it hard to concentrate on anything else. also if anyone answers me, could you tell me where you obtained the information from, as i have scoured the internet and cannot find any information on this.
