Can HIV be contracted if a drop of HIV infected blood touches your eye?
HIV Infected Through Blood Touching Eye HIV can in theory enter your body through the eye; however, although a very small number of people - usually people working in a healthcare setting - have become infected with HIV as a result of blood splashes to the eye, research suggests that the risk of HIV infection in this way is extremely small.

No, you can't get HIV from spit in your eye. This is simply because HIV is not spread through saliva, butthrough other bodily fluids like blood and semen. Still, you shouldtr…y to avoid getting spit in your eye.
Answer It's possible, but not likely. I would still get tested just to be safe.
HIV can be contracted through a drop of blood touching your tongue. Microscopic skin tears, cuts, or lesions may be present on the tongue allowing the HIV virus to enter… into the body. Keep in mind that when the drop of blood touches the tongue, often it mixes with saliva and therefore dilutes and spreads to the entire mouth allowing more surface area for the blood and possible virus to come into contact with skin irregularities.
Can you contract HIV if the person infected with it cut there finger on your computer monitor and you then touched it?
No. That is not enough blood to cause an HIV infection. There needs to be a significant amount in order for that to occur. Essentially, the only way to get infecte…d with HIV is through unprotected sex.
Nope. Not unless you have a fresh open cut there. Also the risk is much lower if that person is on treatment and their viral load is low.
No. Unless you had a cut or something.
No but the exchange of bodily fluids will make you contract it
If you are not already infected with HIV, then you cannot get it by touching your own blood. HIV can only be contracted if you touch somebody else's blood who is already infec…ted with the disease. This website gives you a detailed explaination of how HIV can be transferred: http://hivinsite.ucsf.edu/hiv?page=basics-00-05
No. HIV can not survive in an oxygen rich environment. Unless you're eating out of a syringe, contraction from food isn't an issue. -CSM http://www.hivaidssear…ch.com/facts/hiv_aids_sneeze_cough_risk.htm
Yes, assuming they have sex with someone else who is infected.
perhaps if eczema has been scratched to draw blood and open wound
no, HIV cannot be tranmitted throught touching infected blood, only if you have open cuts or sores.
.....I have no idea why would you ask this question....HIV transmit because of blood transfusion or blood contact. There is no blood that can resist HIV infection...In fact b…lood is the best way to get HIV infection. If you are exposed to blood contaminated with HIV...Do get an early check up.
