NEED HELP! Bloody Saliva?!

Oct 3, 2012

Dear Mr. Cordova,

I was in school the other day, when I felt a splash right below my eye, on the lower eyelid. When I went to the bathroom to clean it off, I noticed a red speck on the paper towel I was using. If there was blood it whatever hit me, what would the risk be?


Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi there:

The likelihood that you would be infected from a situation like this would be low. Also, since the liquid didn't actually get in your eye, one could say the risk was non-existent.

In health,


Husband may be positive but I am negative
