Used HIV friend lipstick on my bleeding lips, will I get HIV if she used on her bleeding lips and I used it after?

Used HIV friend lipstick on my bleeding lips, will I get HIV if she used on her bleeding lips and I used it after?

Extremely unlikely: Lipsticks contain preservatives that should inactivate HIV. But if your friend is known to have HIV, and if she isn't on treatment for HIV and has a high viral load, there could be a very small risk of transmission the lipstick was contaminated with blood and you also had cuts or bleeding of your lips. If in doubt, discuss with her and your doctor. But most likely no worries. ...Read more

I have a bleeding wound on my lips and I have used my friend's lipsticks. Will I get HIV considering she has used it on her bleeding lips before?

I have a bleeding wound on my lips and I have used my friend's lipsticks. Will I get HIV considering she has used it on her bleeding lips before?

No: HIV isn't transmitted in this setting. Back in the old days when HIV was not treatable, household contacts simply didn't infect each other except by sharing sex or needle drugs. HIV can't penetrate a wound that's scabbed over, and you're not going to apply lipstick to a fresh hemorrhage. Your friend cannot infect you no matter what unless she's infected herself. Please read up on HIV. Cheers. ...Read more

I have a bleeding wound on my lips and I have used my friend's lipsticks. Will I get HIV considering she has used it on her HIV bleeding lips before?

Get tested now: This may strain the credulity of some of my colleagues. HIV has never been transmitted by sharing of personal care products. However, something did happen. You are an adult now and should get checked for HIV annually in any case. ...Read more

Baby w/ helmet rolled out of laundry basket onto the tile floor, landed on her face, has fat lip, bleeding lip stopped she seems ok. Brain injury? Er?

Baby w/ helmet rolled out of laundry basket onto the tile floor, landed on her face, has fat lip, bleeding lip stopped she seems ok. Brain injury? Er?

Difficult question: Difficult question due to knot enough facts known. It is always safest to have a baby with concern of a head injury to be assessed at er. That being said, no loss of consciousness, no vomiting, did not hit head, more than likely okay. However, if prior bleed or head injury, this increases chances of further injury. Difficult for us to say from this side of the computer, but safe is better. ...Read more

Can HIV be passed by kissing a person with HIV who had a bleeding cut lip, if I also had chapped, picked lips?

Can HIV be passed by kissing a person with HIV who had a bleeding cut lip, if I also had chapped, picked lips?

Highly unlikely ....: but probably very remotely possible. The viral content of this amount of blood in the mouth would be expected to be very low if even measureable. Hard to understand why someone would decide to kiss someone with known HIV who had a bleeding lip; perhaps the HIV status wasn't known at the time. Stay well:) ...Read more

My 3 yr old bumped her mouth on the toddler rail of her bed pretty hard. Her front tooth is lightly loose, a little bleeding & her lip is swollen?

My 3 yr old bumped her mouth on the toddler rail of her bed pretty hard. Her front tooth is lightly loose, a little bleeding & her lip is swollen?

Call your dentist.: You should visit your dentist's office and let them take a look. The tooth may need care immediately, in the future or not at all. It may turn color, and the developing permanent teeth are also at risk from this type of injury. Right now is the time for initial assessment, & an x-ray. Often nothing needs to be done immediately (especially if your child is improving and out of pain). ...Read more

Can HIV be transmitted through kissing with bleeding or chapped lips?

HIGHLY unlikely.: U.S. Cdc says that HIV is not spread by social kissing (closed mouth). Having chapped lips would make minimal difference unless the other person (who might have hiv) bleeds directly into a crack in the chapped lips. ...Read more

My child upper lips bleeding only at night, and it looks like theres a cut in the middle of his upper lips. Soon he woken up blood stain on his teeth?

My child upper lips bleeding only at night, and it looks like theres a cut in the middle of his upper lips. Soon he woken up blood stain on his teeth?

Common enough: Tearing of frenulum ( midline attachment of upper lip to gum margin) tears relatively easily when a child falls & hurts his mouth or face. This may lead to an initial burst of blood which quickly stops or sometimes may ooze for a while. He must have had that so when he woke up he had some staining of his teeth with blood. If this is happening frequently u shd have him checked right away. ...Read more

French kissed random girl and I had a cut that is not bleeding in outer lip, Do I need to take PEP? And do I need to test? Help

French kissed random girl and I had a cut that is not bleeding in outer lip, Do I need to take PEP? And do I need to test? Help

PEP not needed: Kissing is not a mode of transfer for the HIV virus, even with cuts or sores present. However, kissing may lead to other forms of sexual activity where condoms are needed for protection. Have them and use them. If you have been sexually active in the past but have never gotten tested for HIV before, its a good idea to get a baseline test now just so you know your status for sure. ...Read more

Had dental appt today and got cut/injury inside of mouth behind of lip. Bleeding is stopped but i see a blister. Does this often happen? What can I do

Had dental appt today and got cut/injury inside of mouth behind of lip. Bleeding is stopped but i see a blister. Does this often happen? What can I do

It happens: Your post did not explain how the injury occured or the circumstances behind it. Although every effort is made to prevent something like this from happening, it sometimes does. The bleeding has stopped, you are not swollen and not in pain. It most likely will heal without incident, like almost every other wound you may incur. Avoid hot or spicy foods while it heals and let the dentist monitor it. ...Read more

4 yrs old son has severly dry cracked lips bleeding now. Olive oil and kids chap stick not helping. Can I use glycerin or any other suggestion please.

Mgt: I would recommend keeping your son well hydrated. Sometimes dry lips may indicate dehydration. If he is otherwise well, the chapstick without any oil can be continued until healed. If the area is infected, antibiotics may be prescribed by your PCP. ...Read more
