Hmmm.. good question...

but here's my side. i believe, HIV can be contracted through a drop of blood touching your tongue. You see, microscopic skin tears, cuts, or lesions may be present on the tongue allowing the HIV virus to enter into the body. Remember that when the drop of blood touches the tongue, often it mixes with saliva and therefore dilutes and spreads to the entire mouth allowing more surface area for the blood and possible virus to come into contact with skin irregularities.


So be careful.

well i think there is a big chance .... why?

think about it... it's a blood already... and sometimes not knowing you might be in a situation where you have mouth ulcers or any open sores in the gums.... our mouth can be susceptible to open wounds most of the time due to friction or biting anything hard or just brushing your teeth.. what if you get caught in that situation right? who knows.. dba?
