Hi.
I am Dr Mittal.
I have read your message.
I don't think what you were tasting was blood.
The taste of blood is really more metallic than salty.
Besides, as you said , they had gloves on.
So overall, I think it was a poorly prepared cookie.
I do not think you need to worry.
Taking the test? Not a problem. It's just a blood test. I don't think you need it. But if you take the test, I think it will settle the issue and put your mind at rest.
So yes , you can take the test.
I didn't clearly understand the part where you spit the cookie. Was there blood?? or just a component of the cookie?
Please let me know the test result for further suggestion.

Brief Answer:
Take the test

Detailed Answer:
Hi.
Thanks for your responses.
Yes, it would be better to take the test for HIV.
As of the other possibilities , like a bad raisin, none can confirm that unless the cookie itself is sent for testing.
So as of now, I will suggest testing HIV. If you have the remnants of the particular cookie it could be sent for testing for food grading.
Best of luck.

Detailed Answer:
hello.
the question has not been typed properly.
I guess you want to know why I am considering HIV.
First , as I said previously to your consideration of possible HIV - it is less likely to be HIV.
Having said that if you are considering blood related infection, HIV should be strongly ruled out.

it's a fair possibility.
but it's an unsaid medical rule to consider diagnosis like OCD only if medical diagnoses are ruled out.

Detailed Answer:
it would be better and more comprehensive if you could monitor your spellings and ask all your questions as one question instead of a series of questions?

regular OCD needs behavioral therapy.
I am sure you can meet a behavioral therapist in your area.

as for the incidence in the elevator in the condo, since details are not clear, comments cannot be made about possible HIV.

best of luck
