Brief Answer:
Not much of Concern

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Welcome to Health Care Magic,

I have gone through you query and understand your concern.

Only touching peoples and collecting garbage is not a risk factor for any sexual transmitted disease. There is mere chances if you have any cut or abrasion and you come in contact with vaginal secretion or blood or blood product.

Working at pool side and picking up garbage from ground is not of much concern.

Hope this will help you. Let me know if there's any further queries..

Thanks

Brief Answer:
Go for test to clear your doubt

Detailed Answer:
Hi, welcome again,

Of course you are safe.

If there is any doubt in your mind go for HIV Nucleic acid amplification Test (NAAT) is now a days considered most reliable test to detect early HIV test. 1-3 weeks after infection, there will be enough viral material for a positive result.

FDA-approved 4th-generation HIV antibody/antigen tests, which detect both HIV antibody and the p24 antigen, which is part of the HIV virus.This test is considered most accurate.

Hope this will help you.
Thanks

Brief Answer:
Go for the investigation

Detailed Answer:
Hi, welcome again,

For infection to spread there must be contact of blood or blood borne product(serum or oozing) of both person to mix up. Even after this, only contact does not means that you have acquired infection, it may occur if one of the person touching your oozing wound is having HIV and his blood or serum got mixed with yours at any point of time.

Go for the investigations that i have prescribed earlier to clear your doubt. These tests are highly sensitive and will clear the condition.

is this an hiv threat
doctor
Answered by Dr. Shahid Hassan 1 hour later
Brief Answer:
Yes it may be

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Welcome again,

Yes, If it is contaminated with blood of an infected person and you get cut/injury with this, chances are there.

Don't get panic and go for blood test to confirm or refute the chances as advised earlier.

Brief Answer:
Sharp object

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Welcome again,

Picture of object you have uploaded is with sharp edges. It can spread HIV if it is already contaminated and punctures your skin, although chances are less but possibility is there.

That is why I recommend to go for investigation.

I know the Colputure its from the packages of condiments like mayo ketchup and mustard and i notices sharp edges
whats the symptoms of internal bleeding
doctor
Answered by Dr. Shahid Hassan 20 hours later
Brief Answer:
object able to produce cut, pain and color changes

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
welcome back,
The picture you have uploaded looks as it may cause injury, that is why i used the term sharp.
Internal bleeding has nothing to do with HIV transmission.
Symptoms of internal bleeding under-surface of skin is color changes from red to brown/black then gradually fading and pain.
Thanks
