Should I get tested or be worried about HIV or HEP C?

I was getting a haircut and I got a razor shave, the lady cut me kinda deep in my neck and I’m worried that I might be at risk for an infection. Should I get tested?

    HIV is an STD you shouldnt worry about. In order for you to catch HIV the razor must of been used on you immediately but immediately after it was used on someone with HIV. For hepatitis thats a hard question. Hepatitis can be given through cuts or infected objects but I've never heard of Hepatitis being contracted from a barber shop or salon. Also, those places SHOULD change razors. You should call the local and ask them. The answer should be that razors are changed on each person obviously.
