Response from Mr. Glenn

There is absolutely no risk for HIV from the situation you're describing.

A person can not ever get HIV from sweat.

HIV is only transmitted when a fluid carrying it (blood, semen, vaginal fluid, breast milk) comes out of someone's body and goes inside of someone else's body. All of this needs to happen. None of this happened in your case.

Hope this helps!
