  • Food Sharing

    Hello. I want to ask if sharing food and utensils with someone who is + is something to be concerned about. This happened twice, the first one was about 5 weeks ago and the other 4 weeks ago. More than a week ago, I had a lot of red bumps on my chest. And then now, 4 weeks after the last time I shared food with someone, I have a mild sore throat, some achy muscles and headaches. These came on so suddenly. I usually get a sore throat when I eat too much sweets or drink too much soda and cold drinks or when I don't get enough sleep or when I get surrounded by smokers or when I clear my throat so much from post-nasal drip. I have not done any of these. And the throat pain just came on suddenly. I slept and when I woke up, I could feel that pain in my throat. This was coupled by achy muscles and headaches. And they appeared at 3-4 weeks after the food sharing incident.

      Thank you for your response, Doctor. Just one more follow up question and I hope you still provide a response. You said that sharing utensils is okay but how about sharing the food itself. We were using different spoons but we were eating the food on one plate so the spoon that the other person was using also touched the food that I was eating. Should this be a concern? How about if the other person has sores and I also have sores? I hope you still answer this question. Thanks.
