Saliva touching with male chest

Apr 15, 2013

if anyone licks/kisses male chest area with no blood or sore at chest area is there any chance of HIV transmission?

Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi there:

No. There is no risk of transmission in a situation like this. Saliva does not transmit the virus. Only four fluids are capable of transmitting the virus. They are:

1: Semen including pre-ejaculatory fluids

2: Vaginal secretions

3: Breast Milk

4: Blood

In health,


Is 4 weeks enough time for a fairly conclusive hiv test?
