"HIV+ person's spit may have come in contact with eye"
Apr 26, 2012
Is it possible to catch HIV from a patient that is HIV+ if when this patient coughs it might have gotten into your eye? I'm my really even sure that the saliva actually did come on contact with my eye but there was definitely that possibility! I am extremely worried and don't know what to do!
Response from Mr. Glenn
Thanks for the question,
You can not get HIV from saliva. The reasons why can be found throughout our forum archive.
Again, no way!
Hope this helps!
