HIV RISK- Oral Sex W/ Recent Genital Herpes Infection
What is the risk of HIV infection if you had a first non-primary outbreak for genital herpes (already positive for HSV-1) if an HIV + person performs oral sex and the teeth irritate the redness/irritation appeared with genital herpes?

I did not have sores, but did have irritation and burning which had gone away when this happened. Again, the teeth were rubbing against this area during oral sex and caused some redness and irritation afterwards.

I think the person may be in the advanced stages of HIV because I saw what looked like kaposi sarcoma on the back of her thighs.

Also, I have read that an increased risk of HIV exists: 1) especially when newly infected with genital herpes; and, 2) even when sores have healed (see http://www.nih.gov/news/health/aug2009/niaid-02.htm)

Please let me know what my risk is.

2) Why is saliva listed as a fluid that cannot transmit HIV when there are documented cases, and some studies show some people as secreting saliva with high viral loads?

Please see:
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21453452

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11332524

3) Would this situation warrant PEP?

4) What if the person had sores or irritated/inflamed gums?

Thank You

I just posted this question. Are you implying there is absolutely no risk?

Thank You

I happened upon your post by accident and perhaps what you are suffering is health anxiety? If you go through life thinking and double thinking every sexual encounter that you have and trying to work out if what you saw is something sinister like Kaposi's Sarcoma, you are going to drive yourself crazy!
