HIV DNA pcr? Made donation pls help

Jan 22, 2012

I have donated money but please help i have a serious question. What is the risk for a negative person receiving anilingus (tossing of salad) with an open wound or cut from an HIV positive person??? Is testing needed??? Can an MD please assist I am really in need of help. Lymph nodes swelled. Had a neg antibody test at 8 days now going for a DNA pcr test at 11 days which is claiming 95 percent accuracy. Please helpppp.

Response from Dr. Wohl

Saliva does not carry HIV sufficiently to cause infection. Someone (assume for argument sake that he is HIV+) licking your anus even with a cut on your anus will not give you HIV. DW
