Hi.... Can HIV be transmitted if the Seman or Blood goes into my Eyes or Mouth which was outside the body for say 2 or 3 minutes? pls let me know, am i at risk of getting HIV this way..?
Response from Dr. Wohl
Yes. It is possible for HIV to be transmitted by a splash of infected fluids to the eyes. The risk depends on the amount of virus in the fluids but even in worst case would be low per a single exposure.
