IS THIS INFECTIOUS BODY FLUID?
Feb 11, 2003

Doctor Ryan,

I happened to contact a certain type of body fluid, i.e. liquid in blisters on feet (foot tinea). Is this infectious body fluids or not?

Thanks a zillion.

Response from Mr. Kull

The body fluids that are known to transmit HIV are blood, semen, vaginal/cervical secretions, and breast milk. HIV is not know to be transmitted through other bodily fluids.
