Std through DIRECT contact with urine?

Jul 10, 2009

If Urine was to be poured over my head and maybe leak into my ears or something can I get an STD? I'm not joking, this happend and I'm scared.

Response from Dr. Frascino


Wow. You mean you actually had a "golden shower"???? I thought that was just a cute name used by those into "water sports". Relax Max. Urine that does not contain visible blood is not a risk for STDs, including HIV. By the way, would you like to tell us the details of how and why urine was poured over your head? We're just curious, that's all.

HIV-2 Initial test positive. Probabilities...
