Customer Question
Hi doctor. Today I have...
Hi doctor. Today I have an important question about HIV transmission. Because today I had to do a lot of activities so I forgot to wash my hand carefully, therefore I touch my hand into my acnes and it seemed like that my acnes have a very little blood on them but I am not sure if it is a fresh or dry blood. Along with this, I remembered that I touched plastic trash bag and other surfaces without knowing their status or condition. So is it possible for me to be positive with HIV infection?

Hello my name is***** am a board-certified physician with 15 years of clinical experience and I am happy to help you. From what you have described, no, it is not possible for you to contract HIV. Even if you touched plastic trash bags and/or other surfaces and mingled that with some blood from you acne. HIV requires a substantial amount of body fluid exchange to infect.
Can I help you with anything else today?

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.

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!!
