Getting AIDS from a public toilet
Oct 31, 1996
Hi, I was wondering if it is possible to get AIDS from water splashing up from a public toilet and coming in contact with the anus. In this particular instance, I had flushed the toilet before using it, but there appeared to be small residual bits of feces adhering to the inside of the toilet. Thanks for your help.

This is probably coming from one of my patients who's having fun with me (I know who you are!), but just in case it's for real, I'll answer the question. . .
. . .No.
