Feb 27, 2012

have broken lips and it bleed in winter now days..in that time i used the bottle to drink water used by others what are the risk of transmission?? having a habbit of nail prikin so bleed around nail skin..if this skin is touched many things or even blood ..what are the chances??

Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi there:

There is zero risk of transmission from situations like this. HIV does not live well outside the body. Also, the virus can not be transmitted through casual contact. The virus needs direct access to the bloodstream for transmission to occur. There is no direct access to the bloodstream from casual contact.

In health,

Richard Cordova
