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

Can you infected with aids by kissing. How long after sexual contact can I be tested? Thank you

No: No, it is very unlikely to get infected with HIV (which causes aids) by kissing (assuming closed mouth kissing). Open mouth kissing may place you at higher risk if the hiv-infected person has an open bleeding sore that you come in contact with. However, this is very unlikely. Regarding getting HIV tested after sexual contact, it depends on your perceived risk of the person. I recommend 3-6 mos. ...Read more
