Answer: 

Hello, HIV is not passed in the air, HIV does not live outside of a human host and you are not at risk from this accident you witnessed. HIV through the eyes is considered a negligible risk and we have no evidence that this has ever happened. Research and science is still looking into the eyes as a transmission route. HIV needs direct access into your bloodstream from a person living with HIV.

The 3 high risk activities that may pass HIV are, unprotected vaginal intercourse, unprotected anal intercourse, and injecting with shared needles. Acne and pimples on your face or any other area of your body are not direct accesses to your bloodstream. While a friend can say many things, we at the Helpline only pass along up to date facts.
