HIV risk on a surface? DOC IM SCARED FOR MY LIFE!
Mar 11, 2012
56 days ago on December 20 2011 drops of HIV+ blood dropped on a surface in my house from a friend of mine. 3 hrs later I cleaned it with tissues soaked with rubbing alcohol and washed my hands for 4 minutes. My question is: If my penis touched the same surface today February 13 2012 CAN I GET HIV from the surface?! I'm worried! When should I get tested? Thanks in advance!
Response from Ms. Southall
Hi You are safe, no you cannot get HIV from what you have described. HIV dies shortly after leaving the body.
Rest assured!! Be well and stay safe, Shannon
