Full Answer

According to Healthline, a person who has HIV or AIDS does not typically look different from someone who is not infected, apart from the occasional non-contagious rash or skin lesion. HIV is only spread through blood, semen and vaginal fluids, and you cannot contract it without bodily fluid exchange. Typically fluids such as spit, sweat or mucous are not dangerous and it is very rare to contract HIV without sexual relations or the sharing of needles. The best way to know if your potential partner has HIV or AIDS is not to assess his/her appearance, but to communicate your concerns.
