So, they have no life outside the body, but waiting and in its latency. ...Read more
Strep and other: bacteria normally live indefinitely on your skin, as part of the normal flora. It is usually out-competed by other species of bacteria and therefore does not cause infections. Occasionally if it is allowed to get inside skin mucosal surface or inside the epidermis, it will cause very inflammatory and serious infections such as strep throat. ...Read more
It varies.: In certain conditions, the virus can survive outside the body for several weeks (such as inside a syringe). Survival depends on which body fluid it is in, volume of the body fluid, concentration of the virus within it, temperature, acidity, and exposure to sunlight and humidity. Hiv transmission has not been reported as a consequence of contact with spillages of blood, semen or other body fluids. ...Read more

Most of these are in gay young men in their 20s. Be safe. Check with a doc if Qs ...Read more
Likely not long.: In order to get infected this way, the disease would likely have been in some fluid that would be injected in the body quite rapidly, and at that time contaminate the needle. The needle would not be used again but discarded. Most needles are disposable now so they should be sterile before use. If in a needle, the disease would only live likely <1-20 min. As germs don't live long on metals, etc. ...Read more
Very briefly: Hep c will survive only as long as there are living cells present. Heat, cold, time, and other adverse conditions will all destroy it. It may survive in tissues, blood, or other body fluids as long as they are kept warm or are preserved for reinfusion to others like blood transfusions. It is not generally transmitted through inanimate objects. ...Read more
