When spraying water from hand held bidet to clean anus and penis hole in toilet does water enter the blood stream in anus or penis from bidet spray?
Low pressure, low...: Low pressure means low risk of fluids getting into one's body; means no worries. Low water pressure would be similar to taking a bath, where the tap water is presumed clean and safe. Also, a person can spray from a hand-held bidet at 45-90 degrees with respect to any bodily openings... which means avoid aiming directly into a bodily hole, but rather aiming at a 45-90 degree angle. ...Read more

Saw feces around my fistulotomy wound, can't clean out. Later,have discharge along with feces. Is that what it mean body won't trap feces in wound?
Can you get HIV from someones feces in the toilet? The toilet water with feces hit my eye and it was about a minute after the person used the bathroom
HIGHLY unlikely.: It is highly unlikely that someone would acquire an HIV infection from urine via intact skin.

If the urine was not bloody and the skin did not have an open wound, then the chances of infection are immeasurably small. ...Read more
In hostel, pink stains in bowls of all common toilets
Noticed pink ring around dried urine puddle on floor.
same reason as stains in bowl(bacteria?)?
Hmmm...: One cannot think too much into pink rings around people's dried urine puddles. Just presume toilet areas are a mess, full of poop germs. That means, if it's your toilet, clean it; if it's not your toilet, get in and out as fast as you can. If spending more any more than 1 minute thinking about toilet stains, one's problem is probably not the toilet stains. ...Read more
