I was at a chinese restuaraant with my collegues as we were eating and waiting for the next dish to be served, i placed my chopstick on the holder next to me on the table, as my collegue was reaching for some food on the table, his arm contacted with my chopstick for a while, I took and chopstick and continue eating.
i saw he has a very bad skin condition with rashes and wound all over his arm, my concern is if there was some blood from his wound and i continue to eat with the chopstick 2 minutes later and i got a wound in my mouth due to wisdom tooth surgery extraction (about 5 days old), any risk?
I read that 3 cases infant got hiv from prechew food with mother with bleeding gum and baby with sore in mouth, wont i be at risk like that?
but just one more point to clear my doubt, if hiv is not infectious outside the body, why has it got to do with immune system, if the virus is already cannaot attach to the body T-cells, then the baby would not have caught it in the first place
