Possible Transmission to friend?
« on: April 16, 2013, 11:31:44 PM »
This weekend I was out with some friends and I suffered a head injury, naturally there was a lot of blood being a head injury and all. Some of my friends rushed in to help despite my demands not touch me or my blood. Unfortunately one of them got quite a bit of blood on his hands. He didn't have any open wounds on his hands and I've been undetectable for over a year. I'm still kinda of sketchy on whether or not transmission is possible through blood skin contact and worried his helping me might have jeopardized his health.

From what you described there is absolutely nothing to worry about.
"Many people, especially in the gay community, turn to oral sex as a safer alternative in the age of AIDS. And with HIV rates rising, people need to remember that oral sex is safer sex. It's a reasonable alternative."
