My husband and I have Genital Herpes. I had a C section due to this. We were recently away on vacation with our 8 month old. There was only a stand up shower in our hotel so my husband showered with my 8 month old. In the shower there was a sitting area.

Hi, and thanks for your question While HIV can technically be passed through breastmilk, we typically see this from a mother who has HIV to an infant when the baby actually ingests breastmilk during regular breastfeeding multiple times per day. If the breastmilk only came in contact with your skin, then there would not be a risk. And as you’ve pointed out, the HIV status of your partner is... Read Full Answer
Are boils a symptoms of hiv?
Hi There are no specific symptoms that are exclusive to HIV. If someone gets HIV the symptoms they could get can also be caused by many different medical conditions. Given this people are unable to use symptoms as a way to determine if they have HIV or not. The only way to find out if you have HIV is by doing a HIV test. To answer your question boils would not be a symptom that is specific to... Read Full Answer
