trying on shorts
Jun 2, 2004

I went to the thrift store today and I tried on a pair of shorts. The problem is is that I tried them on without underwear on. Is is possible to get HIV from this?

Response from Dr. Lee

Not likely. Next time wear underwear.

Be well.

PS Of the sexually transmitted diseases, Herpes is more likely to be transmitted in this way than HIV.

Worried and would appreciate an answer
