Daily Contact with HIV
Feb 20, 2005
If you shake hands with an HIV infected person (sweat is present in their hands, then (after 10 minutes or so)touch your eyes or an open wound in your body, what are the chances of getting infected?
Thanks for having an informative website.
Response from Dr. Frascino

Oh, and before you ask, the same applies to mosquitoes, public toilets and doorknobs.
