A member asked:

Hello doctors. i got into a confrontation with man when going to work. he was refusing to give me my change. can i get hiv from eyes. checked my eyes and there was no blood.also one of the seats of taxi scratched my thighs. am i at any risk of hiv?

DOUBTFUL: To get HIV there has to be transfer of blood somehow so I am not sure how your eyes would necessarily be involved. or your leg from a scratch. Try to calm yourself and not let some small amount of money or a disagreement rule your life.

No: HIV transmission is not possible in above described scenario(s). A fight-or-flight response appears likely given circumstances in the context of possible HIV related anxiety.
