sores in mouth HIV risk

hi there,

first of all,thank you for your efforts to inform people who are in doubt about certain health questions.Your opinion are greatly appreciated.

A few days ago i was involved in deep(tongue) kissing with a girl.Earlier that day i bit my mouth from the inner side.I also got a bit drunk and when i got home i saw a bleeding inside my mouth(i think it happened when i ate raw nuts afterwards but can't be sure since i was a little drunk).My question is if this girl is hiv possitive am i at risk of contracting the virus?I know that transmission doesn't happen through kissing but what happens when there was a sore that was bleeding?

thank you in advance,i apologize if my question is stupid but i am also a bit worried.

you aren't at risk of contracting hiv from kissing someone. this is not a risk.

Grace,thank you for your comment.Does a small sore or a bleeding would make things different?Sorry to bother you again i just wanna be sure and put my mind at ease.

No it would not. HIV needs a protected enviornment to be at risk for infection.
