I was with a woman of unknown status (protected vaginal & unprotected oral) who had a small piercing (bead) on the side of her nose. The piercing got damaged during sex and was bleeding slightly, maybe a couple of drops total.
My question is, if some of her blood during kissing made it's way on the inside of my nose because of close face contact and nose rubbing during kissing and she was HIV+ would this be a risk for infection? It was stated many times here that trace amounts of blood in mouth would not be a risk, so I'm wondering about the possible lining of the nose if it came into contact with possible HIV+ blood.
