HIV infection from getting bitten?


I Got bitten by a guy last night (long story, basically we were mucking around and he fights like a girl) and he made two small cuts in my skin about 1cm long each. I Dont know the guy well, so i dont know if he is infected with HIV or not, theres minimal chance he is, but i was wondering if there is any possiablity that i could have caught the disease if he was positive, by a small amount of his salivia on his teeth while he bit me?

the hiv virus does not transmit through saliva
only through blood, and bodily fluids
so you can't get it

generally not but you can have a test and it takes couple times. its generaly sexual that is how you get it but you can be sure if hes not got it by testing yoruself good luck

No, HIV can not be transmitted through saliva. It can only be transmitted through blood and semen.

hope he wasn't a vampire!

If i were you i would go talk to my docter and see if i should go on any meds. just in case
