1) Can HIV survive in blood mixed with benzocaine+lidocaine?
NO, IT CAN'T.
2) When I apply the gel to my penile head, the fact that benzocaine can absorbed into bloodstream, does it mean HIV (if its in the gel) also gets absorbed into my bloodstream despite the intact skin?
AS MENTIONED ABOVE, THIS IS IMPOSSIBLE.

POSSIBLY, BUT THAT IS IRRELEVANT
