Brief Answer:
Almost zero chance to have contacted HIV.

Detailed Answer:

Thank you for using Healthcaremagic to post your health query.
I read it carefully and understand your concern.

I don't think that you need to see a doctor nor consider any testing. There is almost zero posibility that you have taken HIV infection.
HIV infection is not resistant in the air for longer then few seconds.

If you still are concerned and it would give you a peace of mind to do those tests, then do them.

But again, I say to not worry about it.

Let me know if you have other questions of concerns.

Brief Answer:
No need to worry about HIV

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear,

I reviewed your photos.

I say that you should not worry about HIV infection because you are in your home and that virus is transmitted through other people.

As per your toilet dirt, you can clean it with whatever you use to clean the toilet. You don't need to use any special detergent.

Try not to rub your eyes when they are itchy with your hand- use a clean towel, and do it gently so you won't hurt yourself.

Why should you be embarrassed?

Let me know if you have other questions or concerns.

Regards, Dr. Papaqako
