Mouth kissing risk with open wound under jaw

I have a boil on my face last week (under jaw) which occaisionally bled. I had mouth kissing with a prostitute and then uncovered fellatio. She never took off her pants. Under what conditions could my boil have led to HIV infection ?

A boil on your face.  Do you mean a pimple that is festering?  We all get those.  Keep your hands off of it so it doesn't get infected as our hands even when we wash regularly can be dirty.  With regards to HIV, though, this is not a risk.  The only ways that adults get HIV is from unprotected vaginal or anal sex or sharing IV drug needles.  Air and saliva inactivate the virus. The boil on your face would not be a route of transmission. You have nothing to worry about and no need to test.

Nothing. You were never at a risk. Please read through the FAQ section of this forum for risks.
