No risk, no worry: Nobody ever caught HIV from this sort of contact. To avoid HIV, always have safe sex and don't share drug injection equipment. Otherwise no worries.

Very: UNLIKELY......kissing does not spread HIV nor should the tiny amount of saliva involved in your question! Hope this helps! Dr Z
