Sep 25, 2011

Response from Dr. McGowan

No risk. There is no break in the skin for HIV to enter, and the blood would have to be fresh and present in a large amount (liquid). Also you don't really know if it is infected or not. Just relax and try not to keep bloody towels lying around.


Possible way of transmission? Please help.
really worried took two dna pcr test help
