Is it possible for transmission through blood on a tissue
« on: June 04, 2006, 06:29:03 PM »
A couple weeks ago i picked up a tissue (that i thought was mine that i had dropped) off the ground. I do not remember if it had blood on it. I used it to wipe a cut. Should i go get myself tested.

Masala,

As Rod says, NO.

Please read through the HIV Transmission Lesson

Masala,

You do NOT need to test for hiv infection because you picked up a tissue, even if it wasn't yours and even if there was blood on it.  Did you read the Transmission Lesson?

No.  Your post was completely read including the wiping of your cut.

That is not how HIV is transmitted, no matter how complicated you try to make it.

No way, no how, no no no.

(who thinks maybe one more NO might help you)....NO
Meh.

No, you will not get HIV from being stabbed with a pencil. The tissue wouldn't have made any difference even if you had been bleeding at the time.

Please stop with the what ifs. That's a very slippery slope to get yourself on to.

If you have a situation that actually happens and can give details about it that's the best way to get a reliable response.

And read the lessons here about transmission and also on testing.

Cheers,
Andy Velez
