transmission to child
Mar 17, 2009

I am HIV positive and my child scratch me. I noticed a few minutes some blood in my face. Unknow if blodd was on son nails and if he put fingers in mouth. Should I be concerned?

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for your post.

I would find that your son's risk would be very, very low-- so don't worry.
