I am PLHA and I have had condyloma. Does the blood that the mosquito sucks and then dies, has the blood that the mosquito sucks from my body contains the HIV and HPV viruses?
Hello, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
HIV or human immunodeficiency virus is a virus that can spread from human to human through direct contact with body fluids such as blood, vaginal fluids, semen, preejaculate fluid, rectal fluid, or breast milk. Direct contact that has the potential to transmit the HIV virus is through sexual intercourse (through vaginal, oral, or anal), sharing needles, punctured objects contaminated with the blood or body fluids of people with HIV, blood transfusions or organ transplants, spread from mother to baby during pregnancy, childbirth, or breastfeeding.
Although it can spread through the blood, HIV will not be spread through mosquito bites. When a mosquito sucks the blood of a person with HIV, this blood will enter the mosquito's digestive tract. In the digestive tract of this mosquito, HIV cannot replicate (reproduce) because there are no cells that support HIV to survive. In addition, the digestive enzymes in the mosquito's digestive tract will kill the virus itself. This is different from other diseases carried by mosquitoes such as dengue fever or malaria.
HPV or human papilloma virus is a virus that is spread by direct skin-to-skin contact from skin lesions containing HPV. This virus does not enter the blood and does not spread through the blood, so it will not be transmitted through mosquito bites.
The following is an article you can read about HIV and HPV
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
