Deep kissing

Hello, my English is not good, I had a deep kiss with a wound and light blood. I'm very scared, I can't sleep. Should I get tested for HIV?

The only risks for HIV in adults are:
1) Having unprotected (no condom) penetrative anal or vaginal sex, OR
2) Sharing IV drug equipment with other IV drug users.

No other event that you can think of, including the kissing with wound event you mentioned, puts you at risk for HIV.  You had zero risk for HIV. You do not need to test for HIV.

Are there cases in the world that HIV has been transmitted with deep kissing?
No. If kissing was a risk, I would have told you.
