Jan 26, 2010
I recently hung out with a friend that is HIV+. He was smoking a cigarette and I noticed his lip was slightly bleeding. Anywho, he blew the smoke right in my face and i inhaled ALL of the smoke and now I'm worried because he was bleeding from his lip then blew the smoke in my face and it went up my nose when I inhaled. Is this a risk?
$45 donation will be added to my paypal. Thank you doc
Response from Dr. Frascino
HIV from secondhand smoke? Nah. No way. No how. Cancer maybe, but HIV? Nope!
Thanks for the tax-deductible donation to The Robert James Frascino AIDS Foundation (www.concertedeffort.org). It's very much appreciated.
One final note: Do your buddy a favor and encourage him to give up cigarettes. There's a good chance the cigarettes will put him six feet under long before HIV.
