If someone gets their blood on you will you get aids?

Short answer: possibly.First of all, to contract AIDS, the person must be infected with the HIV virus. If the person is infected with the HIV virus (which causes aids) and you get their blood on an open wound, or a mucus membrane such as the mouth, it is possible. If you get some infected blood on normal skin that is healthy, the chances of you contracting the HIV virus are slim to impossible (?).

How can a person become infected with AIDS?

A person can become infected with AIDS through one of three ways. 1. They have sex with an infected person, and get HIV, which eventually leads to AIDS. 2. They get it from their mother. It passes along through the blood, and a HIV infected mother could have her baby infected with HIV, which, again, leads to AIDS. 3. Sharing a needle (I.E. drugs, diabetes shots, etc.) with a person who has AIDS. They have the HIV virus, which turns into AIDS after some time. -Peregrine
