HIV through shoes

Jul 21, 2007

hi there Iam really worried because I wore a pair of pumps of my a good friend.I learned he is hiv positive and symptomatic.I know you cangt get hiv from swimsuits(we share sometimes)but can I get hiv from shoes?

Response from Dr. Frascino


You know you can't contract HIV via swimsuits, but you're still uncertain if you can get it from sharing a stylish pair of cha-cha heels? Dude, be reasonable. Even if your mate wears his Doc Martins to bed or to an orgy, you can't get HIV from borrowing a pair of his pumps!
