Can You Get Hiv Or Hep B Or Hep C If Someone Accidentally Spits In Your Eye And It Has Small Amounts Of Blood In It
If someone put a straw in your drink and had blood on his hands would you get hep c or Hib if you used the straw and blood went in mouth I have ulcer?
Deadly Viruses: Nope. Not in any way risky. I cannot help noticing that you keep making up scenarios that are well known not to be risky and asking this same question. Are you trying to cover up the way you got infected from hepatitis or HIV so that you do not have to be responsible for unhealthy behavior? ...Read more
Hiv infection is caused by a retrovirus....This retrovirus binds to CD4 cells (for the most part). You may detect the virus by several different methods. An elisa test (enzyme linked immunosorbent assay). You may also detect it by doing a test referred to as a western blot (a gel protein electrophoresis). Thirdly by pcr (polymerase chain reaction) which ...Read more

Is saliva from a hiv + person that gets in eye a risk if they also have gum disease(?blood)? My client accidentally spits and it gets in mouth/eyes
Low risk, but...: Saliva inactivates HIV and not known to transmit it, even when blood is also present. Your risk is exceedingly low, zero for practical purposes. Still, it sounds like maybe you're a dental hygienist or similar. If so, you're supposed to take routine precautions against such exposures, like glasses or goggles--not so much to protect against HIV, but other blood borne viruses, colds, influenza, etc ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can hep c live outside of blood? If i wash off contaminated blood off a surface can there still be the hep c virus present? If so can it transfer from object to object? My main question is, can hep c live ouside of blood onve a person bleeds it out?
NO: Is the short answer. Viruses live in cells and cannot survive outside of human tissues for more than a very brief time. You get hep c by direct transfer of blood or tissue to another individual, most commonly by needle use. ...Read more
If you kiss someone with hep b but they have no open sores/blood in their mouth and you have a wisdom tooth growing in could you get hep b from this?
If you get urine in your eye, mouth, or in any type of cut/open sore on your skin, can you get an STD from that? If the urine has no trace of blood in it, but still makes contact with an open cut from an infected persons urine?
Here are some ...: The agents to cause STDs have their own unique fastidiousness of survival and growth. Therefore, contacting with STDs does not mean contracting them. Contracting them doesn't mean developing the symptoms or lesions of STD due to personal immune defense ability. Of course, avoiding contacts is the best means to avoid STDs. So, beware to practice safe sex and get tested timely if in high risk. ...Read more
If there is no blood present, can hepatitis b or c still be present?
Like, if someone infected were to bleed and bled on a counter. Once the blood w
Can i get hep c or HIV from touching urine bottle don't know if any urine on it with scratches and dermatitis as glove broke?
Hepatitis C in urine: While hepatitis c can be found in urine specimens, transmission by this route hasn't been reported. Most occurred via blood (before testing available) sharing needles, needle sticks & rarely via sex. Hcv is less transmissible than hepatitis b but more-so than hiv. That is not to say that hcv can't be transmitted via urine or saliva & that care should be used when dealing with all body fluids. ...Read more
Is it possible to get Hepatitis B from someone getting spittle/spit in your eye? I ask because I have red HBV can be passed through saliva.

Hiv if i was having a conversation with an HIV person and during the conversation that person sprayed some of his spit in my eye by accident can that causes me to get infected? Thanks
Little if any risk: No such transmission of HIV has ever been reported. In general, exposure to infected persons' mouths or saliva are risk free -- for example, kissing doesn't transmit HIV, or so rarely it can be ignored. Among other likely reasons, saliva kills HIV. This nothing to worry about at all. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can hepatitis B and C be transferred from getting splashed with infected persons urine or saliva? what precautions should a caregiver take?
Hep B/ C in a flash: Hep B and C are classified as blood-borne pathogens and are generally contracted with direct exposure to blood or body secretions, as in sexual contact. Since HBV has been found in saliva, the risk of transmission of Hep B with deep kissing probably exists and the risk increases if one partner wears orthodontic braces or has open cuts or sores in the mouth. No report of Hep B or C via saliva exist ...Read more
If someone who had a cut on their finger prepares your food could you get diseases from that food if blood accidentally gets in the given food?
Almost impossible: It's rare for bacteria and viruses to be in someone's blood. There are rare exceptions like Hep B and HIV; however, even if blood containing those microbes got in your food,eating it wouldn't cause you to get infected. Those microbes need to get into your blood, not your stomach (where acid and enzymes would kill them). If you had an open cut in your mouth perhaps you could get it but so unlikely! ...Read more
If a person is infected with HIV is it possible to get infected if i rinsed his toothbrush in the sink and some of the water splashes into my eyes?
Extremely unlikely: In some persons living with hiv, the virus has been detected in saliva, but in extremely low quantities. Contact with saliva alone has never been shown to result in transmission of hiv, and there is no documented case of transmission from an hiv-infected person spitting on another person. If tainted with blood it increases the chances but extremely unlikely. If concerned, get tested. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Can people have gonorrhea or chlamydia in their throats from oral sex? Is this dangerous if you don't know? If a cut in mouth is it in your blood?
Yes you can: Gonorrhea and chlamydia can cause oropharyngeal or throat infections from "oral sex". Most people with these throat infections tend to have symptoms and experience soreness, painful throats, fevers...and seek treatment and relief; antibiotics can readily prevent the dissemination of the infection to other organs. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is there much risk if someone has HIV and small traces of blood in there saliva got into a bleeding cut you had on leg when they were talking to you.
Not a chance: Listen. Saliva doesn't transmit HIV. A cut on your leg is already closed. During the bad years when there was no treatment, milllions of families had an HIV-positive member playing freely, sharing utensils, licking, kissing, hugging, cuddling and everything else that makes life nice, and not a single person caught HIV except by sex or sharing needles. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
So kissing a girl that has a bloody cut on her lip does that put a great risk for me to get HIV an hep if i can taste blood? or a very low risk
"very low risk": The question being asked is "great risk" or "very low risk", with a typical girl. The CDC says that in 2010, there were ~2000 new cases of HIV in the U.S. in young women. If that happens year after year, we could end up with over 20-30,000 young women in the U.S. with HIV. There are about 35 million young women in the U.S., which means better than 999 out of 1000 young women DON'T have HIV. ...Read more
