Ice cubes and ulcer

Nov 11, 2012

I was at a party , I guy had fresh cuts on his hands and a blood nose that night he would have touched the ice for his drinks he was quite unsanitary could I have contracted anything from that ice in my drink ? I had a fresh mouth ulcer at the time of it happening .

Response from Ms. Southall

Hi HIV does not survive well or long after it leaves the body. There would have to be a large volume of blood present and with the watering diluting it and with it starting to die once it leaves the body there is no chance of getting HIV this way.

You are fine, be well and stay safe, Shannon

emotional support and where to go
