2. My bf came on my in pubic area, I noticed that I had a pimple on my abdomen which was red but not sure if it was an open one. What are the odds of virus transmission through such red wounds/pimple etc (in case of an autoimmune patient)?
HIV is unable to reproduce outside its living host (unlike many bacteria or fungi, which may do so under suitable conditions), except under laboratory conditions; therefore, it does not spread or maintain infectiousness outside its host.
HIV is transmitted by;
Unprotected penetrative anal and/or vaginal sex
Sharing works with other IV drug users
Mother to child
