Worried about hiv
Earning morning i saw some red scaring on my tongue very tiny one like papillae injury.. There wasnt any active blood.. I do have minor cuts in my mouth due to sharp teeth.. But no active blood comming out of it... On the same day i smooched a guy.. He was having a injury or tear near his lips.. Due to his own biting trauma... We smooched right aftrr some 10 15 mins aftr his injury.. While smooching there wasnt any active blood comming out.. Like the cut was on the way of healing due to wht platellets action.... I m worried because i m unaware of his hiv status.. If he has it.. Wil i get it in ths way.. While smooching.. Wen we had cuts on and inside our mouth.. Is ths how hiv is passed theough blood??

Hi.... Hiv spreads through following .... Contact between broken skin, wounds, or mucous membranes and HIV-infected blood or blood-contaminated body fluids. Deep, open-mouth kissing if the person with HIV has sores or bleeding gums and blood from the HIV-positive partner gets into the bloodstream of theHIV-negative partner. HIV is not spread through saliva....
