I went to visit my sister who has aids- her dog was overly excited and scratched me- I did see blood come from that scratch- she was trying to tame him twords the beginning and I worry about him scratching her and then scratching me right after
Response from Dr. Hightow-Weidman
Hello- No there is no way HIV can be transmitted this way. Hopefully your sister is in care and on medications to treat her HIV and if she isn't perhaps you could be an advocate to make that happen. Take care, LHW
