If an HIV positive person who does not have a very good oral hygiene spit in my eye a conversation, and saliva into it can contract HIV?

What is the chance?

Saliva kills or neutralizes the virus?



The virus exists in the saliva? how much of it?

thank you!

Saliva is not infectious and actually destroys the HIV virus.

It's not a cure,saliva can't do anything for the HIV virus in the body.It only destroys it in the mouth--this is why oral sex is not a risk.

No it would not be a risk because the saliva would have destroyed the HIV virus,thats why you can share food and drinks with HIV+ people and there would be no risk of infection.If HIV+ blood got in your eye without saliva then that would be a different story.

Like I said,spit or saliva in the eye is not a risk for HIV transmission but if you got infected blood in your eye like say a lab worker then there is a risk.
