Probably okay: It is probably fine, but the sore should be checked by a Pediatrician. Very often viral illness may be associated or it may be an isolated finding. The baby if otherwise well, has defenses against illness.

There is no chance of HIV transmission by a shared drinking cup or exposure to saliva. And for sure if the other baby's immune deficiency were caused by HIV, his or her doctors would know it .
