Anxious about HIV transmi

I was the first client in the morning at a local waxing salon. What are the chances of getting infected by HIV from Hot wax. Or from a dirty towel ( a towel that maynot have not have been used for 12 hours,) just worried. Heard that HIV doesn't survive well outside. I am a guy ,i practise sports. No symptoms though.

Hello.... As such transmission of HIV through blood is more... Towel don't carry any risk ,HIV doesn't survive in open environment for long period of time. Washing razor with detttol or antiseptic kill almost everything.. So in your case it's almost zero.. Usually they use new blade for each one separately.. Or else you get your own.
