    fears of hiv from indirect contact

    Hello everyone and a special thanks to doctors who offer their knowledge. I explain briefly my situation. Exactly a week ago I was with an escort.

    I just moved in a new condominium unit which was not supposedly occupied for almost two years. I did some sort of cleaning and eventually I have to use one of the toilets.After using the toilet, I saw some dark brown spots in one side of the toilet bowl and so I tried scratching it using my toes.

    I need information

    ello, My grandmother recently tested positive for HIV. I am worried for two reasons: 1. She tends to get breaks in her skin because it is so thin and she bleeds. 2. She doesn't recall engaging in any risk behaviors. I took an at home HIV test (ORAQUICK) and tested negative. I do not remember ever getting her blood on me, but she has kissed my cheek (I have acne). Also, I have hugged her when she has had broken skin and scabs on her arms from tearing, but most of the time they are bandaged, Should....
