today my brother had a nose bleed and to cover his nose i gave him my t-shirt that i was wearing at the time, i don't know my HIV status, if i was HIV+ is there any chance of him getting infected like this ? please answer my question in worried thank you so much !!
Response from Dr. Young
You don't get HIV from t-shirts. There's no risk of HIV transmission.
That said, if you think that you might have HIV, it's a terrifically good idea for your health (and perhaps others) to get tested and know your status.
