Ear wax and HIV

Aug 5, 2004

Dear Dr. Hope you are well. This a silly question but Id really appreciate if yoy can answer it please. Can HIV be transmited through ear wax?? I checked the forums but the only answer is from 1997. Thank u and sorry for the question.

Response from Dr. Frascino


Earwax? Earwax???? I'm not surprised there is limited information on earwax as a vehicle for HIV transmission. I've just got to wonder why you ask. I'm a very nonjudgmental kind of guy, so tell me just how kinky can one really get with earwax?

The answer to your question is no. So fear not the used Q-tips of your kinky partners.

Stay well.

Dr. Bob

Can I finally WHOOO HOOO?????
At least first part of my question deserve your answer (Not eligible to vote but Dubeya will surely be defeated)
