Worried about HIV

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(towel maybe clean,I am just worried). Heard that HIV doesn't survive well outside. I am a guy,I practise sports.This happened in june this year, no symptoms till now. Am I being paranoid ? There was a minor scratch on my skin though, like the one you get over scratch your dry skin, but it had dried. Am I unnecessarily panicking ?

Dear friend, HIV does not spread by using the same towel or eating together or sitting near by or sharing things unless you both have any open wounds. So the way you mentioned can not be the way through which you can get HIV infection. So pls dont worry.Hope this helps.Regards.
