|spread of lesions and KS (kissing,touching)
Jan 10, 2000
I understand that lesion and KS are caused by a condition. Sometimes I feel like kissing my boyfreind's lesions and KS ,so I can comfort him. He has not asked me to. I just really feel his pain. I do care for him. Will kissing his KS and lesions endanger my health? I am also HIV +
Response from Dr. Dezube
Kissing your boyfriend's KS skin lesions will not make you sick. The virus that is thought to cause KS is most likely transmitted sexually.
kaposi sarcoma and hemophilia
