Can you get HIV from blood on faucet handle?
In order to be infected by HIV you need to get it into your system, this can happen via blood. Getting infected blood on your hands will not give you an infection. The only chance of getting an infection trough blood on a faucet handle is if you had an open wound were you came into contact with the infected blood.
Asked in Care of Horses
How do you treat an infected wound on a horse?
If your horse has a wound that is infected, I'd definitely take it to a vet. That way they can give them antibiotics to stop the infection. Afterwards I'd suggest regular cleaning of the wound and maybe a bandage to keep it clean. You can tell when your horses wound is infected when it has an awful smell to it, and when it looks dirty and is gooey.
