Toilet Safety/Open Wounds
      #222311 - 01/16/07 06:19 PM

My son is coming to see us. He has HIV and Chrohns disease and has blood in his stool, my wife has bleeding hemroids and I have had a boil near my butt lanced and is opened to drain. Since we all have something bleeding going on what precautions shall we take. I dont want us to use differnet bathrooms as that would make him feel bad if we asked. We leave tommorow night. Please advise ASAP

There is no need for extra precautions. This has nothing to do with open cuts, closed cuts, bleeding cuts, lanced boils or hemmaroids. People simply don't get HIV from toilets.

If you are really that worried, buy some of them flushable toilet seat covers.

Otherwise, you can't get HIV from a toilet seat.
