Sir I have one more query Some


Q: Sir
I have one more query. Some 14 days ago i went to a lab for blood test. They took the blood and i had no problem with that. After two days from that i went to a salon for shaving. The barber shaved with a new blade. But before leaving the salon he told that he forgot to shave the hair near the neck. So he shaved it but that time i saw he took a blade which was used to a man 10 minutes ago. I do not know the man but the barber said he was healthy. Now my question is can these two incidents transmit hiv? After 7 days from that shaving i got a cold and then mild fever continuing for 5 days. No such joint or muscle pain and no palpable swelling of lymph nodes still. I had a tendency of mouth ulcers from childhood and they are present and they are forming newly. I am unmarried and had no sexual relationship. Should i worry for hiv and go for a test?
