Avatar f tn Once blood or fluids are released out of the body. How long could HIV or AIDS live on towel, soap or surface. For example say someone who does not have HIV or AIDS uses the towel of someone who has the virus. The towel has blood or fluids on the towel. Is that person in any risk?

Avatar f tn First, if you had HIV exposure, do you have AIDS? Or do you mean your feared but untrue HIV exposure? It appears you don't have HIV, so it appears if you had any exposure your immune system worked fine and you're fine. But that doesn't mean you don't have some other problem, and the fact you saw a GP doesn't mean all that much, they don't check for all that much.
Avatar n tn If you stick with oral sex and condom-protected vaginal or anal sex, you have no HIV worries and very little worry about other STDs.

DR HOOK "HIV is not spread by touching, masturbation, oral sex or condom protected sex."- DR.
Avatar m tn So if he had HIV/AIDS and he wiped his face with the blood coming out from the pimples, is it possible it got into my eyes? Or if it was mixed with sweat? Remember, I was about 2 feet away from him. I kept staring at the blood on his face, like a million times! Is this a risk too? Just looking at it, maybe it could have entered my eyes!! *I also had a cut on my lip from peeling the skin off my bottom lip that bled a few hours before this (12 hrs or so), does this pose a risk as well?

Avatar m tn t exhibited every symptoms, I do experienced Sore Throat around march or february, fatigue from the time I did a 100 count squat and muscle pain from sleeping late, but I still get worried over the fact that I have HIV and that it would develop into Aids.

Avatar m tn AIDS is caused by the HIV virus and everyone who has AIDs has the HIV virus but not everyone who has the HIV virus has AIDS. This is because AIDS is a far advanced stage of HIV infection at which time the infection has progressed to the point at which the infected person's immune system cannot any longer prevent certain infections or other complications of immune deficiency from occurring. The virus is what is passed from person to person and is what causes AIDS.
Avatar m tn Because of its frequent use by some commercial sex workers and an elevated risk of abrasion or genital injury, dry sex is believed to increase the risk of HIV transmission and acquisition. Very different than your experience, which clearly is a low-risk practice, not a high-risk one. Avoid the other kind of dry sex and your risk will remain low! Good luck-- HHH, MD the doctor said it could pass in low risk , what it means low risk? if there was a miss and she was naked? or wat?
