Please help!

Does soap or achol kill HIV virus? I touched handle which HIV+ people may touched with their blood or semen etc. But I washed my hand with soap and hot water and also had shower.  After that, I wanked myself. Will I get infected?

You mean the virus only lives where there are blood, semen etc.? Does soap or achol kill them?

HIV only can be contacted via sex contact, IV drug, blood product and mother to child. No other situation. Is that right?

So people can not contact HIV from environmental surface, even there might be a little body fuilds on it. Is that right?
