Hi Oral HIV transmission is one of the hardest ways to get HIV. Even with blood present and your open sore it is still difficult. Though yes the risk increase some but not a lot.
Non reactive does mean the same as negative. The guidelines for HIV testing are to be initially tested at 3 weeks then again at 90 days, if both of these tests are negative then so are you, as long as there were no other types of exposure during that 3 month period, if so then the timing starts over again.
The ear infection can be just that an ear infection. It doesn't mean you have HIV. If the ear infection doesn't go away I would recommend seeing your healthcare provider for follow up.
Be well and stay safe, Shannon
