infected by licking an open bleeding cut

Mar 7, 2013

If I'm HIV+ an I had a small cut that was bleeding an my son licked it is he at risk.

Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi there:

Transmission would be unlikely. HIV is not readily transmitted via the mouth. In addition, the virus starts to die the moment it leaves the body. While I would not be concerned, it might be a good idea to have your son tested in 90 days - just to be safe. I'm confident the result will be negative.

In the future, don't let anyone lick your bleeding wounds.

In health,
