rimming and blood in saliva

Aug 27, 2001

How likely is it to get AIDS from someone rimming you that had some blood in his saliva? Would hemmorhoids be a factor?

Response from Mr. Kull

Infected blood coming into contact with your mucous membranes (the lining of the anus/rectum) poses a risk for infection. There is only one published case of transmission occurring oral-anal contact (rimming). I do not know if having hemmorhoids at that time of this contact would increase your risk for infection.
