CAN ONE CATCH THE HIV VIRUS BY KISSING,CAN THE NEXT PERSON MAKE YOU SICK THROUGH SALIVA GLANDS?


CAN ONE CATCH THE HIV VIRUS BY KISSING,CAN THE NEXT PERSON MAKE YOU SICK THROUGH SALIVA GLANDS?

No you cannot catch HIV through kissing, unless they have an open, actively bleeding cut, and you have an open actively bleeding cut in your mouth. I don't know what you mean by "make you sick through saliva glands"...but HIV is not transmitted through saliva. There are binding agents in saliva that stick to the HIV and deactivate it, and also make it too large to pass through the membranes in your mouth

No, HIV is not transmitted by saliva. The only way you would be at risk by kissing an infected person is if you both have open cuts or sores in your mouth. You could get a cold, oral herpes, or mono by kissing someone who has any of those illnesses.

HIV (Human Immunodeficiency virus) is an infection that can be passed from person to person in a variety of ways. These include from needles contaminated with infected blood, unprotected sex and through blood transfusions and organ donation.

Not kissing.
