Hi! I work in...

Hi! I work in a store. We have this one hiv positive regular customer who has been off the meds for quite sometime. She borrowed our restroom key and used our restroom. we don't discriminate, and we always let her do it. But today several hours after she used it, I noticed there was a really small blood stain on the keychain. It looked dry. I have also used the restroom before I noticed the stain. Should I be worried because I have touched my private part with the same hand that handled the keychain. usually I wouldn't worry, but now I am starting a family, health has became a concern for me. thank you for your time

Doctor's Assistant: In general, how has your health been lately?

I have been ok. A bit stressed with work and life

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

No. I have been fairly health most of the time

Dear customer

Thank you for being online.

No,there is nothing to worry about transmission of HIV here.

HIV is transmitted only when there is direct blood to blood contact.

Even though you have used the restroom before you noticed the stain-this cannot transmit HIV virus.

Even if you have touched your private part with the same hand that handled the keychain. The blood strain on key chain was dry. HIV virus is fragile by nature and is also extremely sensitive outside the body to even small fluctuations in temperature and the presence of oxygen.

Practically,HIV virus cannot survive outside human body.

So bot***** *****ne is that this cannot transmit HIV virus.

There is nothing to worry or of concern here.

Thank you.

Hope this helped

Thank you for the fast reply. This has really cleared my irrational fear. I was never worried about things like this when I was younger. I guess being grown up and worry about getting family infected with something really did a number on my mental health. Thank you very much

Yes,there does not seem to be any chance of HIV transmission this way.

Thank you for the words of appreciation & for using just answer website.

God bless you & take care.

Kind Regards
Dr.Josh

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.
