The Use Of E-cigarettes Alternates With HIV Sufferers?
Hello, can I use electric cigarettes like vape in turn with someone who has HIV … And is it contagious,
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. HIV cannot be transmitted through vape, but that does not mean you will be free of disease when using vape.
HIV is transmitted from sufferers to non-sufferers only through certain media, in the form of blood, breast milk, sperm and vaginal fluids. Thus, only activities that involve the transfer of fluid from the patient's body to non-sufferers can transmit the HIV virus, such as sexual intercourse, blood transfusion, the use of unsterile needles, and from mother to child when breastfeeding. HIV is not transmitted through air, saliva, sweat, tears and urine. That is why activities such as hugging, kissing, touching, or using vape won't transmit HIV.
But as we said earlier, not transmitting HIV does not mean you still have to use vape. Vape still has the potential for dangerous diseases and can cause cancer. So do not let you mistakenly avoid activities that actually will not transmit HIV, but instead more comfortable doing habits that can lead to cancer. So, hopefully answering your question.
