Expert Q & A Answers About What causes HIV
Is it possible to get AIDS from saliva? My friend licked his finger while flipping the pages of a book and I immediately touched it, since I was explaining something. My thumb has a skin condition and has open cuts. My friend is gay and I’m not familiar with his sexual past. I heard that gay people are more likely to have AIDS - is this true? And if he does have AIDS, is it possible that I’m infected?
My friend and I were eating Japanese food and she took the chopsticks out of her mouth and stuck them in my hot noodle soup. I know for a fact that she has had multiple partners and hasn’t been tested for AIDS. I also have a small blister in my mouth that I’m worried makes me more susceptible to STDs. Should I be concerned?
I have a friend who has HIV. She has a girlfriend she has sex with. Her girlfriend licks dried blood off her arm. She says the virus is dead and can’t hurt her. Is that true? Can you get HIV from dried blood?
I’m gay and I like having oral sex with my friend. But I heard that oral sex can be risky for getting HIV/AIDS. My partner is free from these diseases…do I have anything to worry about?
