Have you cleaned your syringe with a bleach solution?

Have you used is before you were cured?

Why are you self vaccinating and not your doctor?

Why are you reusing a syringe? Just get a new one.
i did not clean syringe with bleach. i was cured 8 years ago. Now im getting vaccine for dust allergy on weekly basis.
No, you can't reinfect yourself with something you no longer have
Just to be clear this syringe was not used while you were infected 8 years ago is that correct?

If you are only now recently using this syringe and not before you were cured 8 years ago, as hrsepwrguy said you cannot infect yourself with something you do not have.
No i did not use this syringe 8 years ago. Im using this now a days for twice
As was said you can't give yourself a virus you do not have so as long as you are the only one using this syringe no virus.
Actually a syringe laying around for 8 years would not be infective, anyway.
Yeah probably not still wouldn't want to risk it though just on the off chance
