does hiv transfer through a ringworm
May 31, 2013
if you have protected sex and vaginal fluids infected with hiv come into contact with a ring worn on your skin. Are you at risk of acquiring hiv.
Response from Ms. Southall
Hi HIV transmission occurs when there is a direct exchange of body fluid through blood, semen, vaginal fluid and mothers breast milk. Having ringworm does not increase your risk.
Be well and stay safe, Shannon
