6 weeks ago I had hiv+ blood spilled on my fingers in the process of setting up an iv line,at the time of the incidence I was unaware of the status of the patient but I had no visible cuts on my fingertips when I checked.
Two weeks later I developed a fever,night sweat,cough and chills and general feeling of malaise, with an ulcer on my lip which I've never had before..
These disappeared after a week,but a week later I experienced the same malaise with night sweat and the cough is still persisting.
Now, I'll admit to being very anxious and in a state of extreme stress due to the aforementioned exposure and I've decided to wait till 3 months to have a conclusive test done.
Now,my question is,is this incidenct perceived as possible infection scenario or is stress and my fear getting the best of me?
