My grandmother recently tested positive for HIV. I am worried for two reasons: 1. She tends to get breaks in her skin because it is so thin and she bleeds. 2. She doesn't recall engaging in any risk behaviors.
I took an at home HIV test (ORAQUICK) and tested negative. I do not remember ever getting her blood on me, but she has kissed my cheek (I have acne).
