AIDS on doors
Dec 27, 2011

If there is a infected HIV positive person with blood on there hands and say they touch a door handle at a shop then you have the infected blood on your hands then later on u go home and masterbate without washing your hands can you get aids/HIV in this way?

Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi there:

HIV does not live well outside the body, and would not survive on a door knob. You do not have to be concerned about contracting HIV this way.

In health,

Richard
