gums
      #158128 - 08/04/05 10:58 AM

I had a low risk encounter 2 months ago when a sexworker bit my lip while kissing. I tested negative at 34 days. I just wanted to answer a question. I noticed that my gums are inflamed, so i decided to start brushing them constantly, so one day i brushed my gums like 4 times. Could that have caused my gums to break apart and form like a white scar? cuz the next day i felt pain in my gum and saw a white thing on the back part of my gum. Im worried it could be an oral manifestation of hiv. Please reply!

Kisspanic, is that you again????

If you brush your gums too much, sure, they can be injured. Take it easy! You do NOT NOT NOT have HIV.
