|hiv negative still anxious
Apr 12, 2006
I was attacked by a drug user a year ago and had the necessary wait and eventually tested negative. However, the other day while cleaning out the back of the car I found the jacket i was wearing at the time, It had an oil type substance on it and some dried fluids, I am worried that there may be some virus remaining in the oil on the jacket as this has not dried out. Please, please help put my mind to rest I cannot go through with another test again. Does the virus lose viability even without drying over time. Thank you if you could answer this question, a donation will be made to your foundation regardless
