Simply touching someone who has HIV is not going to infect you. Having sex or sharing needles with a HIV person is the only way to contract it.
bhuban replied to Elle0317's response:
but is it safe to touch his rash wounds with naked hand??? what is the amount of time needed to lower the cd4 to 242...??? why i got three rashes???
georgiagail replied to bhuban's response:
Yes, it safe to touch his rash with a naked hand. HIV is not passed via this method.
