HIV infection through sweat in eyes

Mar 17, 2006

Hi, I have read in many placs that you can not be infected through contact with the sweat of and HIV infected person. However, would it be possible to be infected if the sweat came into contact with, lets say, your eyes?


Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello Andre,

Exactly what part of "you cannot be infected through contact with the sweat of an HIV-infected person" don't you understand??? After all, you've read this fact in "many placs," right? Come on, Andre, be reasonable! Do we really need to say "you cannot be infected through contact with the sweat of an HIV-infected person even when it gets into Andre's eyes?????"

Dr. Bob

"r u money minded"?!! HA!
Extremely confused! I am raising money for your foundation!
