hiv on toilet paper

Jul 13, 2006

Hi there

I have recently become worried that I may have been infected with hiv after using toilet paper in a public restroom that I had blown my nose with, I noticed there was a wet patch on the tissue that had touched near my mouth, and I was afraid that this may have been semen, although I was not entirely sure. Is there anything for me to worry about?


Response from Dr. Horwath

No, you can't be infected in this way.
