i was travelling in a AC compartment of a train in india and sleeping on a birth. during midnight i felt something like a mosquito bite. the next day morning i could see some blood strains on the white sheet. Now, 3 weeks later i got some red rashes on both sides of my chest area. one day later, i got a severe sore throat too. i didnt have any noticable fever so far except a loss of appettite. I am completely tensed now as i think it was some one who tried to inject hiv blood when i was sleeping. i have never aquired a rash in my life time. This fact scares me even more.
Should i be worried? Should i test for hiv? should i be away from any sexual activity with my partner?
since i have this rash episode for the first time along with severe sore throat, my thinking goes in this way. More over in india, any one can enter a train compartment and do this. can i avoid testing? can i have sexual activity with my partner? request for an opinion from all on this. Request Mr. Teak's opinion also on this
