Mar 29, 2014

Hello doctor I need your help,I am a nurse I was talking to a friend who is HIV positive he was complaining about his mouth sores but he was talking to me a liquid splatter from his mouth that hit my left eye and my lip. Im very scared. Am I at risk? He has 4 open mouth sores due to weak immune system. Wat if ders blood mix with saliva

Response from Dr. Henry

Risk from splatter from mouth secretions to an eye/lip is basically zero=incredibly low risk.
