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

My daughter is currently taking Paxil for anxiety and severe OCD. She recently found out that she is pregnant. She has been on 30 mg. for about 4years. She was told to take 10 mg. twice a day for a week and then 10 for one week. She could not deal with the change.
What alternative drug could she take that is safe. Her OCD's and anxiety are pretty intense without the Paxil. Thank you for your time.
