HIV+ Person Coughing
Sep 26, 2006
I was in a car talking with an HIV+ person, we both sit in the front, all windows closed. During conversations, he coughed on me at least 3 times. At first I didn't think anything about it. But now I am being paranoid because if his cough contained blood and it could gotten into my eyes or possible breath in. Do you think I was at risk.? What should I do? Thanks.... A scared man

If HIV were spread by coughing, it would have wiped out the entire planet long ago.
What should you do? That's easy. Stop worrying.
