hiv from kissing, specifics in detail

hello

so last night i was out on a party, i was very drunk, so i met a girl and we had a short kissing session. the thing is i have a condition known as benign migratory glossitis, this condition is characterised by constant inflammation of the toungue and sometimes the cheeks and i had this condition for 7 years there's no visible bleeding or wound except for the constant metallic taste at inflammatory site. also i have read a research stating drinking alcohol increased chance of contracting hiv through oral mucosa by 6 fold.

i'm really worried what are the chances of contracting the virus from the mentioned exposure?

thanks in advance.

Kissing is never a risk for HIV.  Air and saliva inactivate the virus.  No one has ever gotten HIV through kissing, not a single documented case.  The only ways someone gets HIV is to have unprotected vaginal or anal intercourse with penetration or to share IV drug needles they inject.  Having your mouth condition nor drinking alcohol will increase your risk of acquiring HIV.

What you've read applies to infants that have underdeveloped oral muscous membrane. You are an adult, aren't you? Therefore, none of what you have read applies to you. Stop reading information on the internet, it's garbage anyways. No risk, testing is not necessary.
