Hi I have a very good friend who was recently diagnosed with HIV, to support him his partner had invited all of us to barbeque party at his house. I am but worried because
1. This HIV pos friend has a bad habit of bitting is nails and cuticles which I have seen bleed few times. He prepared some of the cold food like sandwiches and salad by his bare hands. Whatif some of his blood went on the food that we eat immediately? Also while eating salad I bite my tongue very badly that bleed, does this increase my risk as well?
2. While picking up fork from table my finger got poked by it, got small scratch/punture that bleed a little. If the fork had picked him as he was standing right next to it and then poked me am I at risk?
I feel terrible to even right this but want to be safe and understand risk so can be supportive of him going forward. This is all new to all of us. I am male in early 20's in US.
