HIV transmission from cookies straight from hands of HIV +
May 6, 2013
Dear Dr. Wohl,
I a from Fiji and recently, an HIV positive friend gaveme cookies straight from his hand and I am worried that he could have use that hand elsewhere.
Am I at risk with HIV?
Response from Dr. Wohl
HIV from a cookie? No. As long as you do not have unprotected sex with this pal or use injection equipment he has used, you have nothing to worry about in terms of catching HIV from him.
