Could I have aids?

Apr 29, 2012

Hello I'm twelve and I have had many cuts at school but not put a band aid on them... But nobody had touched the cut/cuts. And from what I also beleive I don't think they would of been HIV+ but could I still have aids from this?

Response from Ms. Southall

HI HIV transmission only happens if there is direct exchange of body fluid. Since no one touched your cuts you are fine and have no fear of HIV from this. HIV transmission only occurs again through direct exchange of body fluid. Blood, semen, vaginal fluids or breast milk and through unprotected sex.

You are fine!

Be well and keep asking questions!
