Can rug burn be a method of infection, if in contact with body fluids???
| Response from Mr. Kull
If the rug burn provides HIV access to your bloodstream, then yes, it could be a vehicle for infection. I'm sure that rug burns can vary in severity, and it would be difficult to say that they uniformly contribute or don't contribute to infection when coming into contact with infected fluids.
