Customer Question
I was in a public...
I was in a public restroom after which I came out and got into my car. I had a pimple on my chest which popped and squeezed out the pus out of it. Now I'm worried if I came into contact with some bodily fluids from the public restroom and touched my open wound (popped pimple) which would lead to hiv. Although there was at least a gap of 5 mins between these events. Please help. Thanks

That means damage to the small blood vessels in the brain from high blood pressure.

This led to reduced blood flow through them.

These changes occur from hypertension, aging process and also fro high cholesterol problem.

Does she have any symptoms?

Sorry about that --yes you are right.
Regarding your question, HIV transmission throug a squeezed pimple secretion is not likely.

Do not worry.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
