Is it possible to get HIV from kissing someone and exchanging saliva? How can you find out if your comanion had it or not?
Response from Dr. Jackson
You might be able to get infected this way if your companion is HIV infected, but the risk is very very small. Ask your companion if he/she has been tested for HIV recently.
