HIV from urine on a toilet seat?
I know that this sounds crazy but I have to ask.

I was at my local mall and I had to go to the restroom so bad.

I know that having OCD and a chronic phobia of HIV holds me back from using public restrooms regularly but I REALLY had to go.

I got into the stall and what unbuttoning my pants and noticed that there was a drop of pee on the seat. I was in a frantic hurry to go to the restroom that I forgot to even "hover" over the seat and I just plopped down to go to the restroom.

When I shave, I get little bumps on the back of my thighs and then I pick at them....they weren't bleeding or anything but I am nervous because what if this pee had HIV in it and then it got into one of these bumps?

What if this pee had microscopic particles of blood in it that got into one of my open bumps.

I do not know how long this was sitting on the seat before I came along. However, the bathroom was full of people and out of the 3 stalls, this one was the only one open.

I'm scared!

No...The virus can only live 14 seconds outside the human body

Holy crap. No, you're not going to get HIV from that. It's really not possible.

You won't get HIV like that. That kind of virus lives only nanoseconds in the air. I understand the fear, but don't let it drive you crazy or you might get panic attacks from that.

Your question is somewhat difficult to answer about the risk of infections through watersports (getting pee/piss/urine on or in your body). There are certain infections that are known to be spread through contact with urine, and there are also a lot of gray areas. Be careful of people who are not speaking from a purely scientific perspective: people who tout urine therapy as a cure-all and those who wave their finger at you because they think it is a "dirty" activity.

Urine, when compared to other fluids in the body, is relatively sterile. Urine is primarily comprised of water, urea (proteins and amino acids), uric acid, and other bodily waste products.

There is no known risk of HIV transmission through contact with urine in or on your body. HIV cannot always be isolated in urine, and if it is, HIV concentrations are too small to pose a threat of infection. Some conditions contribute to blood being present in a person's urine, which would contribute to a risk of HIV transmission.

Whether or not urine poses a significant enough risk to you will be for you to decide.

HIV is not carried in urine.

Urine is sterile and HIV dies off once it hits the air.

you can't get hiv from a drop of pee on a toilet seat
