Can Saliva transmit Hiv virus ?

Feb 21, 2012

Dear Dr Wohl,

I am real scared and paranoid and I wanted your opinion about my recent incident. I went to a strip club and deep kissed a stripper for 30 - 40 seconds.I realized later on that I had a cut on my upper lips from shaving earlier and 2 small sores inside my mouth. I did have blood on my lips and saliva.She did not have any visible blood in her mouth and lips. God forbid is she was hiv+ , what are my chances ? I have been experiencing sore throat and cold over the two three weeks. Please i am very much sacred and going paranoid. Can the virus transmit through saliva only ? Help please.

Response from Dr. Wohl

Chances of HIV infection = 0
