|"Should one be tested if kissed on the cheek?"
Sep 4, 1996
Does a person need to get tested if he was kissed by someone on the cheek and some saliva was left on it?(How daily shaving will factor in even if there were no cuts on the face?)(What about other STD's)?
| Response from Dr. Cohen
God help us all if we can't kiss people on the cheek (or on the mouth for that matter)! No, you definitely do NOT need to get tested after being kissed on the cheek. In fact, the only thing I've ever heard of anyone getting that way is a lipstick smudge.
