    HIV risk

    I was at a friends house whose sister had been a drug user. She hugged me. I noticed she had some scabs and pimples that had scabbed over. If one of them touched my eye during the hug could I get infected. If there were small amounts of blood on the pimples scabs or skins that I didn't notice and it got in my eye could that infect me. Or because it was outside the body would it be no infective.

    RE: HIV risk

    Hugging someone with HIV (and you do not even know if this person is infected with this virus) does not transmit the virus to another person.

    She hugged you. She didn't get her scabs in your eyes.
