Can warm metal spread hiv?

Apr 28, 2013

Hi i was wondering

I left my house and on the door magnetic hinge of my council flat door tere were brown and red drops which seemed blood. I touched t and the metal seemed really warm but the blood was dry. I have cuts on my hand and I was wondering does warm metal help keep hiv alive?

Response from Mr. Glenn

Thanks for your question,

This doesn't sound like a risky situation at all. To get HIV, there needs to be fluid carrying HIV coming out of someone's body and going immediately/directly inside of your body. That didn't happen in your case. You didn't even see who left these red drops, this means that way too much time passed.

Hope this helps!
