Thanks for this service, and for being so positive and unselfish in all that you do for everyone effected with HIV.
Now, here's my question. I am Mr. abstenance, not because of I am religious freak, but because I am so anxiety prone. But yesterday I deep kissed a stripper for 45 minutes. About 3 days earlier I burned the tip of my tongue with some hot soup. It was not bleeding when I kissed her, and looked almost completely healed, as there was only minimal discoloration. NO matter how hard I pressed on the burned area I could not draw blood, so I am almost certain it was not an active bleading cut. What are my risks of acquiring HIV from this 45 minute kiss? Should I get tested for HIV? What about HBV and Hep. A?
Thanks. And I have left you a nice donation.
As the old song goes, "a kiss is just a kiss . . . as time goes by . . . ," even if you burned the tip of your tongue three days ago and your kiss lasts 45 minutes and the person you're playing tonsil hockey with is a skanky stripper. We didn't put all that last part in the "As Time Goes By" song lyric, as it's hard to find a rhyme for "skanky stripper."
I do not feel HIV or hepatitis testing is warranted. Certainly it's always an available option for you, but I see no medical justification for recommending it based on the information you provided.
Thank you for your donation to the Robert James Frascino AIDS Foundation (www.concertedeffort.org).
Be well. Stay well.
