hiv from slight spit splash
Mar 29, 2014
Hello Doc, A couple of days back I went to a bar in dubai. One can observe a lot many prostitutes roaming around there. One of the girls (chinese) approached me for massage/sex. I obviously refused but somehow I felt slight amount of her spit going in my mouth while talking. I immediately did spit it out in a tissue.
Why I am worried is because I was chewing gum a couple of ours back and bit my tounge. I could feel slight bleeding after but it stopped. After that I had dinner and some beer at the pub before the incidence.
I want to know what are my chances of getting hiv from this episode.
Response from Mr. Cordova
There was no risk of transmission in the scenario you described. HIV can not be transmitted via saliva.
