Can hiv spread by kissing over a pimple ?

Jan 17, 2012

Hello Richard Cordova,

I wanted to get your feedback about the recent situation of mine ( 5days back). I happened to open-mouth kissed a girl who works at a brothel. Thou i did not have any open sores in my mouth, i had a small pimple on my upper lift, which split open while we kissed for 30 40 seconds max. There was a lil blood from the pimple. Also she did insert her tongue in my mouth for the time we kissed. I did ask her about her hiv status and she told me she was clean and did not have the infection. I am sure I dint have the infection prior to the kiss, but now i am very much concerned about my health. What are my chances as per you and how soon should i get my test done. Please help. Kind regards


Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi there:

This would not be a risk for HIV. Unless she was bleeding profusely from the mouth, this would not even be a remote risk.

In health,
