Hello Diki, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
HIV or human immunodeficiency virus is a virus that can be transmitted through certain body fluids only. Body fluids that have the potential to transmit the HIV virus are blood, semen, pre-ejaculate fluid, anal fluid, vaginal fluids, and breast milk. This fluid must come into contact with mucosa (the thin, wet skin that lines the inside of the mouth, eyes, anus, vagina, or internal organs), or injured tissue, or be injected directly into a vein.
HIV will not be transmitted through contact between the sweat of an HIV sufferer and an open wound. HIV is also not transmitted through hugging, kissing, using the toilet together, eating from the same plate or drinking from the same glass. Therefore, if there is no contamination of blood from HIV sufferers in the sweat to an open wound, HIV testing is not necessary.
