Please answer my question
Aug 14, 2011

My aunt is HIV positive. Yesterday, I visited her and she said that she got cuts on her fingers from cooking earlier. Then, she used her fingers with cuts on them to feed my child with snack food. Is my child at risk of being infected with HIV virus? Thanks so much for your response.

Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for your post.

Based on what you have described, your child is at no risk of HIV infection.

Be well, BY
