AIDS Transmission and Toilets
Aug 19, 2003
I dropped something in a public toilet and retreived it. I had a cut on my hand. Is it possible to contract HIV from doing so.
Response from Dr. Frascino
Yes, it's possible. But only if, when you bent over to stick your hand in the tidy bowel, an HIV-positive person screwed you from behind without using a condom.
