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
