Please provide information about my query. I am a cable operator. Once I visited a foreign lady's house. While doing the work, the lady provided me a water bottle. I drank the water and after 10 minutes I had small sores. I think the lady has poured her blood in the water. I think she had HIV, and can I get infected in this way? What is the period of the virus in the water?
HIV cannot be transmitted through water, and it is not infectious because HIV cannot live in water. Drinking water containing the virus cannot cause HIV infection. If it is possible, then no one can stop HIV infection and all the population will be infected. So, there is nothing to worry about.
Yes, water containing HIV infected blood cannot transmit HIV infection. Nothing to worry.
Thank you for the reply,
I did not had unprotected sex with anyone in my life. My mistake is that one day I had bitten by my pet dog after that I went to a government hospital. I think they reused the string. After that, I went for an HIV, PCR, and DNA test. The test was negative but for the past six days, I am getting more sweat when I sit or walk and also while sleeping. Is this a sign of HIV? I never had sweat issues in my life and I am going to get married soon.
Excess night sweats are not a symptom of HIV (human immunodeficiency virus), but it is a sign of tuberculosis. Get tested at the nearest RNTCP (Revised National Tuberculosis Control Program) for increased night sweats.
You are conclusively non-reactive and not at all infected with HIV (human immunodeficiency virus). You need to leave the thought and accept reality.
