bought sticky bra, possible hit transmission

Nov 27, 2012

I purchased a glue on bra the other day and put it with the plastic on my breasts and then without, if the person before me had HIV is it possible that it could have lived on the plastic or material and entered my body this way?

Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi there:

No. HIV is not transmitted this way. The virus does not live well outside of the human body, and is not spread through casual contact. There was NO RISK in this situation.

In health,


HIV risk and fear
Risk of putting band aid on someone's cut
