Help me pleasee!
Mar 7, 2013

This is the second time I'm writing to you guys! :( please help meee. I cant concentrate on anything else. Can i get hiv if someone accidentally spit while talking to me and some saliva landed inside my mouth ?? I had a cut inside my mouth because my braces cut me ..What if it had blood in the saliva? Im not sure that there was blood,, but can i get HIV if for some reason there was a little bit of blood on their saliva? What are the chances that there wass blood on the saliva? Pleaseeee help me! Im so worried and i cant sleep at night !

Response from Ms. Southall

Hi HIV transmission does not occur through saliva. You cannot get HIV through the example you gave of someone spitting while talking.

Be well and stay safe, Shannon
