HIV Toilet Seat Transmission

Apr 12, 2012

On 4/5, I noticed there was blood on the seat, and I did not sit on the toilet seat. I cleaned up the blood using Clorox wipes. I did not see any blood on my hands. Pardon my graphic description but I then wiped myself in the tub on my butt and back. I am really worried, but will I get HIV/AIDS?

Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi there:

No. You would not be at risk for HIV in this situtation.

In health,


ARS symptoms 3 days after possible exposure
red macule/possible HIV exposure
