Anxiety related to disease

I'm a senior in college and last spring I started having anxiety in regard to my physical health. I'm not sexually active nor am I a drug user. I've been afraid of contracting hiv and hepatitis lately. I live in a traditional dorm and I went to the bathroom which is pretty close to my room. I slightly left my door open and now im worried that somebody came into my room and infected my toothbrush with either or both of the viruses. I know it seems irrational but I think that if somebody did have them then why wouldn't they want to infect others so they can go thorough the same things as them. Now after I brushed my teeth I feel like I'm going to contract the disease and die. I do go to counseling.
