hiv transmission

Apr 26, 2012

could hiv transmit through superficial tinea infection?when household objects contaminated and if we had come to contact with that objects while carrying unaware tinea fungal infection?

Response from Ms. Southall

HI HIV is not transmitted through casual contact there needs to be a direct exchange of body fluid. Once HIV is outside the body it dies and it therefore not transmittable.

Be well and stay safe, Shannon

Hiv Risk-any need for testing
If one test is negative, will the other also be negative?
