Blood on my Mail
Feb 28, 2008
When I was looking through my mail today I noticed smeared blood on an envelope. I thought nothing of it untill I saw some on another piece. My question is could you contract HIV from thi?. How long does it live outside the body?
Response from Dr. Frascino
Sweetie, the only way you could contract HIV in the mail is to have unsafe sex with an HIV-positive mailman! (Smeared blood on an envelope is not a risk.)
