I was picking at my eye because i had something in it, when i looked at my finger i see dried blood kinda small dotish looking , it wasn't from me or my eye because i checked, so I'm worried that i may have gotten it from somewhere else and didn't notice. So do to this blood and touching my eye, can i get hiv this way ? Really worried ...
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
