possibility of hiv or phobia
An_256723 posted:
I very frequently get my hiv tested and not after the possibility of routine mode of transfer but rare cases like getting a pimple removed by massager or going to dentist. I need help on the issue as its has any sense or its a mere phobia.

HIV is actually a pretty difficult disease to transmit to another person. Getting a pimple removed or going to the dentist are NOT risky behaviors for transmission (I'm assuming you're not having unprotected intercourse or sharing IV drug needles with these folks).
