There is no risk to get this infections that are transmitted by body fluids

Hello,
Thank you for using Healthcaremagic to post your question.
I read it carefully and I understand your concern.

From what you are describing there is no risk for HIV, Hep B or C or other infectious problems that are transmitted though blood or other body fluids. There is no risk of getting these infections from eating something or even from touching an area,unless there is visible blood and the area from your body that touches it is an open wound.

Hope this helps to reassure you.
Let me know if you have other questions or concerns.
