How Can You Get Aids From Kissing
It's unlikely...: Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is the pathogen that can cause autoimmune disease syndrome (aids) and must be tranmitted through a body fluid, usually blood or those exchanged during sexual intercourse. Some people kiss without exchanging any bodily fluids, as in "a kiss on the cheek" but, with exchange of saliva, there is some risk...With an open wound in the oral cavity, risk goes up... ...Read more
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 ?
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

How rare is it to get hiv/aids from french kiss if both partners have open cuts. But only kissed twice. With barley tongue?
Is it possible to get hiv/aids from french kissing, with an open sore (why can't hiv/aids enter the blood stream, from an open sore)?
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
Unlikely: Pool water has many chemicals to keep the water clean and unless there is direct body fluid contact, it is unlikely to get the disease. ...Read more
No: Dried blood is not infectious. In addition, as long as your skin is intact in the area you are touching the dried blood, there is no risk. The danger would be if the blood was not dried and your skin was not intact. For instance, if you had an open sore and came in contact with hiv-infected blood (not dried), this would be higher risk. ...Read more
