Can an HIV virus semen can transmit through touching it?
Feb 24, 2014

If the HIV virus that is present in semen and once touches on the semen can transmit the virus?

Response from Dr. Hightow-Weidman

Hello there No, the skin forms a barrier to penetration of the HIV virus. There needs to be a significant amount of HIV+ body fluid passing from one person's body directly/immediately into another person's body. Intact skin protects against this happening. Take care
