Wetting pants: Has there been new changes in his life - new room or bed, absent parent, new baby, death in the family, etc? If so, address and discuss the situation with him. Try not to scold or punish him - just ignore the situation and offer him rewards and positive reinforcement for a dry day. One frequent cause maybe constipation. Monitor frquency of his bowel movements, size and girth of the stool (pellets). ...Read more

While using the bathroom i bent over to pick up something off of the floor.U doing this i accidently touch the toilet with my mouth. Will i get hiv.

Unlikely: Is there someone else who uses that toilet who has hiv? If not-there is no worry. Hiv is of very low infectivity and requires human to human contact. Most with HIV are on treatment which lowers, sometimes to zero, the viral count making transmission unlikely. Hiv usually quickly dies on a toilet seat but would require the virus to be on the skin. All of these are unlikely. No worry. ...Read more

Hiv is not in any way of any concern in the scenario you describe. Hiv in not caught through skin. It is caught from direct semen or blood to your internal crevices and tissues. ...Read more

No risk, no worries: I find it difficult to believe you found toilet paper that really had blood on it. But if that happened, there would be little or no risk for any of these infections. Don't worry about it. ...Read more
