From your recent discussion with Dr. Hook on the HIV forum, you know that kissing carries little or no risk for HIV transmission. While nobody can say the risk is truly zero, there are no known cases of such transmission.
The risk of other STDs is almost as low. Syphilis is possible but rare. Oral herpes of course is usually transmitted by kissing, but that's not considreed an STD.
A "white spot on the bottom inside the lip it white and little raised and doesnt hurt" is not typical for any STD, and neither is sore throat. If these symptoms persist, see a health care provider. But almost certainly no STD is the problem.
im little confused the other doctor said its still safe to kiss the girl.i thoght you cannot get the hiv infection from kissing. i have kissed her a few more times. the sore just busted and its a little sore so should i get tested for any std or just let it go?
There is no cause for confusion. Dr. Hook and I don't disagree. Sometimes we're just more careful to say things like "no KNOWN risk" or "no risk for practical purpose"; other times we just say no risk. It is impossible to prove that HIV can never be transmitted by kissing. But with no known cases, you can safely assume the risk is zero for practical purposes. Still, if you want 100% guaranteed safety against HIV, you'll have to stop kissing your partner.
It sounds like you had a mucocele, i.e. a bit of mucus trapped in a blocked mucus gland. It's nothing abnormal. But as I said, get it checked out if the problem continues.
