I recently took an over the counter, Oraquick HIV test. I took the test and it was negative.
When disposing of the test, I accidentally touched the test stick window and the swab. Also, when putting the cap back on the liquid some of it spilled on my hand where I have cuts because of the extremely dry and cold weather where I am, AND I bite my nails.
I was reading and it says the test contains:
- 1 Test Stick, containing a nitrocellulose membrane with adsorbed HIV-1 and
HIV-2 synthetic peptides and goat anti-human IgG, and a pad containing a
blocking agent and protein-A colloidal gold
- 1 Test Tube, containing 1 mL of a phosphate buffered saline solution with
polymers and an antimicrobial agent
Can I contract HIV from the stick or the tube?!
I was at ease but now am kind of scared....HELP!
