The Possibility Of Getting HIV If You Use A Toothbrush Alternately?
Greetings doc. I am 20 years old. I have had a problem since a month ago. Initially my father brought the dental gundar still in the box and I wore it. My gums bled and it turned out that my father also used my tooth gundar. Then my gums swelled until my neck hurt. A week later my lips are dry and cracked. I google and apparently maybe hiv. Since then I always dizzy, tingling behind the body. Swollen and painless tonsils. Dean’s deck heart. Like panic attacks. I have no risky activities. Is it possible to get HIV?
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. HIV is indeed a frightening disease because it can weaken the immune system and until now no cure has been found to cure it. HIV can also be transmitted through blood, apart from sperm, vaginal fluid and breast milk.
But what needs to be understood is that HIV is not a disease that appears on its own. HIV is a contagious disease, which means that there must be someone who has HIV first. So if your father is not infected with HIV, you may not get HIV. Then what also needs to be understood is that the HIV virus is very short-lived when exposed to outside air. No one can be sure whether the age is only 5 minutes, 1 minute, or even just a few seconds, but we feel the gap that exists between the use of you and your father is more than that so that even if there is an HIV virus, the virus must be dead. So the conclusion, HIV is not included in the initial possibility of your present condition.
As for the symptoms that you mentioned with swollen gums, neck pain, dry and chapped lips, dizziness, tingling, etc. that can occur due to various other conditions besides HIV because these symptoms are not typical symptoms. Among the conditions that can cause these symptoms are:
Bacterial or viral infections of the oral cavity Dental abscess Gum inflammation Tense headache Anemia Dehydration or lack of fluids Psychological disorders
Therefore it is important for you to check yourself to the doctor first to be able to see the possible causes. You don't need to worry because the use of toiletries is rare and it is very unlikely to transmit the HIV virus. But still, because you have felt these symptoms for a long time, now is the time to do a direct examination to the doctor. The handling you will receive later depends on the results of the inspection.
Meanwhile, multiply the consumption of water, avoid smoking, multiply the consumption of water, fruits and vegetables, avoid excessive anxiety, and adequate rest. So, hopefully answering your question.
