Hi there, I started my internship in a local laboratory that does blood tests in April, and long story short, I had an accident and spilled one of the blood sample over me, some of it may went into my eyes or nose. I did a brief eye irrigation and that's it. Well fast foward to the present, I didn't experience any of the symptoms related to HIV such as rashes, nausea etc, the only thing is just a brief fever (yesterday) but went away after a night sleep. I am getting paranoid since that accident, its been months since that incident, no symptoms except for the slight fever and cough, do you think i am safe? or do i need to undergo a HIV test?
