worried sick about to get married

Jun 25, 2007

Hi Dr. Bob,

Hope everything is well!!! I am about to get married. Recently a guy friend of mine suprised me and kissed me on the cheek. I noticed that he had a sore or something on his lip.Before the incident I recently had all the std tests done including hiv. I have been faithful with my girlfriend and want to make sure that I dont have anything before I spend the rest of my life with her. I love her so much. My question is 1)that can I get oral herpes from this kiss on the cheek. 2) Can I get hiv from this kiss? I had a pimple on my cheek and some dry skin thanks so much I have donated in the past and will donate again thanks so much Doctor for your time and patience

Response from Dr. Frascino


This kiss sounds totally innocent to me. Your worries about HIV and/or herpes are unwarranted. Relax, Max!

Congratulations on your upcoming nuptials!

Dr. Bob
