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.

Can HIV be contracted if a drop of HIV infected blood touches your tongue?

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.
