touch the body fluid?
      #156600 - 06/27/05 03:08 PM

Last weekend, we had a party at my home with some friends (I knowing or I unknowing). After the party, I cleaned the house and the bathroom. There was some stain (not sure blood or urine or some other stuff) on one toilet. I cleaned it and touched it without any protections, ex. gloves. One or two minutes later, I washed my hands with water and soap thoroughly. As I know, my hands had no any open sores or abrasions at that time except for a very small pinprick I accidentally punctured myself two days ago. But today I was told that among those guys attending the party, one is HIV positive. This made me worry a lot. What are the chances for me to get HIV from this possible direct hand touch of the stain?

ZZZZZZZZZZero! Why not learn something new! There are a lot of great materials on this site! HIV dies within seconds of exposure to AIR. So no chance in hell did you get it from him. READ you can learn a lot that way!

I did educate myself a lot on HIV these days. But the more I learned, the more worried I am. I know virus will die once the body fluid(blood, semen, etc) gets dried. Unfortunately, the stain I cleaned was still a little wet at that time. That's the reason why I am so worrying. Under this circumstance, still zero????

No you have nothing to worry about. Its ok. The virus dies once airborne after like a minute or so. Everything is fine. It is ok to ask questions if you are unsure thats what we are here for.
