Can you get aids from both people having chapped lips and one of them has aids, and you're kissing?

Can you get aids from both people having chapped lips and one of them has aids, and you're kissing?

No: Hiv is not found in high enough concentrations in saliva to cause infection, so kissing cannot transmit the virus, even if you both have chapped lips. If one person has active bleeding on the lips, then that is possible, but why would you kiss someone who's lip was bleeding? Truth is, there have been no known cases of HIV being transmitted from kissing. ...Read more

My friend has AIDS how can AIDS be transmitted And if she kisses me in my cheek ( to say hi ) would I get AIDS too ?

My friend has AIDS how can AIDS be transmitted And if she kisses me in my cheek ( to say hi ) would I get AIDS too ?

No risk, no worry: You CANNOT catch AIDS by such contact. You can hug, hiss, give back rubs, or any other sort of friendly contact you like. If you and she aren't having sex, the virus cannot be transmitted. (And even sex, between women, would probably be no risk.) Be as loving and caring as your instincts and friendship dictate. She needs your friendship and support -- don't hesitate; you will not be at risk. ...Read more

Can you get AIDS from a blowjob ?

Can you get AIDS from a blowjob

?

Little or no risk: Extremely rare if ever. I believe there are no proved cases of it ever happening. One estimate, from a report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), is that if the oral partner has HIV, the transmission risk is 1 in 20,000. That's equivalent to receiving BJs from infected partners once a day for 55 years before transmission might be likely, i.e. zero risk for practical purposes. ...Read more
