STD and HIV/AIDS question?

Asked by on March 23, 2014

Can someone get an STD or HIV/AIDS if someone licks a very small cut on you after around 3 hours after you got the cut? If the person doing the licking has an STD or HIV/AIDS?

i dont know about the blood but the virus is so little in your saliva that most likely it cant be transmitted

from what i know you can, if that person had an open wound inside his mouth. Also enough of the HIV or aids virus needs to get inside your system in order to contaminate it. To know for sure if you were infected you need to stop any sexual activity or any activity that might hurt your immune system for six months and then get a STD screening.

Where is this cut that they licked?

If they don’t have an STD in their mouth, then you’re not at risk for getting an STD. Even if they do, they generally have to come in contact with either your mouth or your genital area for this to be a concern (which is why I asked where the cut is).

HIV transmission I guess would be possible, but not very likely, as there is very little of the virus if any to be detected in the saliva. It would take a very large amount.

Why is someone licking you that you do not know if they have HIV? I don’t think I’ve ever had a random person lick me…
