Question

NEEDLESTICK

Hi Doc,

I have a very stupid question. I was outside a club, when I noticed some guys using syringes and that got me worried because I started to wonder if after consuming 3 cans of beer and if I were to be poked with a needle anywhere on my body, would I be able to feel it? I know I sound paranoid, but in times of HIV/ Aids, one tends to ask questions like these.

Many thanks.

Damon, after three beers you will still feel a needle prick that goes deep enough to transmit HIV. Good luck.
