HIV Transmission via broken blisters
Aug 5, 2011
I'm HIV+. Sometimes when I work in the yard, I get blisters on my hands that eventually break. Does the clear fluit that can seep from the exposed tissue be capable of transmitting HIV?
Thanks for your answer; I want to make sure I protect others such as when shacking hands, etc.

HIV is not transmitted via blister fluid. See link below.
