Please answer me I'm worry
Aug 10, 1999

When I was speaking to angry man his saliva came into my eye and I have irritation in my eye, am I at HIV infection risk? And when shall I make HIV Test? Thank you very much for your help.

Response from Dr. Reznik

HIV is not transmitted via saliva which is why people are not at risk for HIV infection if they share utensils, drink from the same cup, etc. Given the information you have supplied in this question, I do not believe an HIV test is necessary.

I hope this helps!
