Despite the billions of kissing events in the AIDS era, not one case of HIV has been known to be transmitted that way, even though millions of those kisses undoubtedly were with cuts in the mouth or on the lips. DR HANSFIELD
We get many questions about kissing and oral exposure and whether or not the presence of a cold sore, bites to the lip, gum disease or other wounds in or around the mouth changes the answer to the question. The answer is no. The data which define the absence of any risk of getting HIV through kissing, deep or otherwise has be generated through studies of thousand and thousands of persons, some of whom had cold cores, cuts, etc. There is no risk. DR. HOOK
Thank you,very much i saw this group recently only and this has definitely reduced my anxiety by a large factor,I will never repeat the mistake.
So,i do not require testing even if she had cut inside her mouth.please tell me.
No you do not need testing.
Thank u teak.this anxiety is killing.thats why i posted this.
In doctors forum ,saw 1 guy claiming that he was affected by kissing. Dr hook disagreed but did not debate.he seems sexually very active.please pass ur view.really scared after reading that.
why would dr hook waste his time "debating" a claim that he KNOWS is false?
kindly move on...you never had an exposure
Dear Lizzie,Even if she were +ve I do not need testing.
Saliva technically speaking, a sterile fluid, i.e. completely free of all germs. YOu can never get any viruses from saliva. No way and No how. Plus our saliva has antibodies from the intruding viruses.
Note: If kissing transmit HIV, I guess 80 billion people are infected.
Dear Tom ,thanks a lot,that is a correct statement,if kissing would have been an effective route much more people would have been affected.Hence I am taking your answer .Only thing is this has increased my anxiety and i am starting to think whether she was bleeding,had sores our chapped lips all doubts i am having+the fear that will i be the first one to get this .if this could have happened this would have happened really in the last 30 years.Really scared thats what i am now.Thanks for the comforting post.
If you say bleeding it must be BLEEDING that requires serious medical attention. Believe me, you will not kiss someone's mouth if you see it's really BLEEDING as is blood is actaully pouring out. Relax, don't drive yourself to anxieties. Your as fine and as clear as purified water.:)
Teak,Can i move on based on Toms Reply ,there is absolutely no need to test even if she had sores or cuts in her mouth.Right?.I do not want to take a chance that is why i keep on asking .The girl was a high risk girl for hiv
