HIV via changing diapers

May 17, 2012

Hello, Short question. What are the chances of passing HIV to a child via diaper changing/wiping the genital and anal area with baby wipes if a person doing this is HIV+ and has cracked skin on his fingers. The cracks were not visibly bloody, just red and were stinging after aplying hand cream on cracks, so some damage of the skin was present. Thank you, worried mum!

Response from Dr. Hightow-Weidman

Hello there- His cracks will not infect your baby's "cracks" Be happy for the help! Take care, LHW
