Possible Trasmissions of HIV
Hi all,

I would like to know if possible routes of transmission that I am asking are apparent risks.

1) Transfer of HIV through shaving razor: How long after an HIV positive person uses a razor would you be at risk if you shared the same razor as well?

2) Can HIV be transferred from an ulcer in the mouth to another ulcer in another persons mouth through kissing?

3) How long does HIV stay alive out side of the body whilst exposed to air?

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
