I went to a barber for shaving. He used a razor, but somehow I forgot to check whether he did change the blade or not. Can I be HIV infected ?
Barber: In general they do. In fact often they get a new razor and apply high heat to it in front of you (which is reassuring), which is likely to kill all the germs.
