HIV Toilet Seat Transmission

Apr 21, 2012

On 4/5, I didn't sit on the toilet seat because there was blood on it. I cleaned the blood using Clorox antibacterial wipes. There was no blood on my hands. I then proceeded to wipe myself on my behind and back. Will I get HIV/AIDS?

Response from Ms. Southall

Hi It sounds as if you did all the right things in cleaning up the area and protecting yourself from getting HIV. You are fine.

Be well and stay safe, Shannon
