|blood in beer
Apr 25, 2012
Can you get hiv from if a little blood got into your beer? not sure if it did but a little blood got onto the wrapper around the top of the beer. It was a reddish smear on the wrapper. I didnt think anything of it when the girl handed me the beer so i took a sip but i kept my lips away from the wrapper. i believe they didnt touch it. what is the risk of this? should i be worried?

Hi There are no documented cases of casual contact HIV transmission. Drinking after someone, eating after someone, using the toilet after someone all will not put you at risk.
Be well and stay safe, Shannon
