You never had an exposure there is nothing to clear up.
I did read the excerpt written by doctors but I was inquiring about the responses from individuals from this site. I relay my answers back to the community seeing that I am my clinics number one resource provider.. So I do my best to explain the differences between the Conservative views and the actual realistic and practical views. There is a lot on controversy between the different view points that I try to clear the air about. That you all for your helpful. I dream to help slow the epidemic. And hopefully one day it will come to end. I amend all who believe in helping the community in bettering themselves.
Had your read the response you would have seen the responses were from doctors.
Thank you for your time.. And your for your detailed explanation. I was wondering; Are the answers on this site from individuals in the medical field or people who just have a large interest in certain fields of std or medical problems.
No, there was never a case of oral sex ever being transmitted in general with a cold sore or not:)

There is no debate (among experts) about the HIV risks associated with oral sex. The risk is so low that almost nobody who cares for HIV infected patients has ever had a patient believed to have been infected that way. Among experts, it's a semantic issue about using terms like "no risk" and "very low risk". There is no difference between my or Dr. Hook's use of "low risk" and other experts' "no risk". DR. HANSFIELD "And oral sex is basically safe sex -- completely safe with respect to HIV and although not zero risk for other STDs, the chance of infection is far lower than for unprotected vaginal or anal sex. Please educate yourself about the real risks. If you stick with oral sex and condom-protected vaginal or anal sex, you have no HIV worries and very little worry about other STDs. " DR HANSFIELD "I am sure you can find lots of people who believe that HIV is transmitted by oral sex, but you will not find scientific data to support this unrealistic concern..." DR HOOK "HIV is not spread by touching, masturbation, oral sex or condom protected sex."- DR. HOOK in the public HIV Prevention forum of MedHelp, TEAK and the other moderators maintain that oral sex in all forms is a zero risk activity. Would you agree with this assessment?I TOTALLY AGREE / DR GARCIA "HIV is not spread by masturbation, through oral sex, through kissing or other casual contact." Dr. Hook "The observation on thousands and thousands of observations is that HIV is not spread by oral sex (of any sort)." DR HOOK "I would not say your risk ,if he had HIV is "slim to none"- that's too high. I would say they are effectively zero. How much of his ejaculate or other genital secretions you may have swallowed makes no difference. EWH " "As far as HIV is concerned, there is no known risk of getting HIV from performing oral sex on an infected partner, even if that person's genital secretions get into your eyes or if you swallow." Dr.Hook HIV is not spread by oral sex, giving or receiving, even if sores, gum disease or blood is present DR HOOK The fact is that there are no cases in which HIV has been proven to be transmitted by oral sex, including fellatio.. EWH
oral sex does not transmit hiv cold sore or not.
