Is there any problem in living with an AIDS patient?
Q: Is there any problem living with an AIDS patient? My 33 years old brother is HIV positive and we (4 adults and 2 children) live together. We share dinner plates, water glasses, water storage tank and buckets. What are the chances to get infected?
A:No, HIV/AIDS does not get transmit by these methods (living together and sharing water glasses, etc). Please remember, if some one has sex with this patient without protection or shares the patients tooth brush, razor, etc, then only there is a risk of HIV transmission. Usual social interactions with a HIV positive person does not transmit HIV infection. So, dont worry.
