Is leukemia contagious?
A friend of mine got leukemia (blood cancer), can I get it from him if he bleeds and I touch the blood? Like HIV I mean.A. No, you don’t have to be afraid, no chance of that. Your friend will need you to pass this terrible illness. So I recommend learning a bit about leukemia so you understand it better and won’t avoid your friend.

My wife got psoriasis and I don’t want to get infected…A. Psoriasis itself, as was written above, isn’t contagious, i.e. if someone has psoriasis he or she can’t transmit it to you. However, there is a form of psoriasis called psoriasis guttate that is associated with infection of the throat by a bacterium called streptococcus (which is contagious), so in some way it is contagious.
