Expert:  Dr. SH replied 1 month ago.

There is no chance of you getting HIV by someone spitting saliva into your mouth even if it has blood in it.

Even swallowing blood and saliva that was spitted into your mouth cannot cause HIV transmission.

The explanation to this is simple.

HIV concentration in the saliva is extremely low as it cannot survive in the harsh environment of saliva.

There has been no documented case in extensive literature of HIV that has been known to be transmitted in this way.

Are you with me?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
but I was thinking you could answer the three other questions
Expert:  Dr. SH replied 1 month ago.

How would can I tell the difference between regular discharge and std discharge

Usually a discharge that is associated with a yeast infection is white and curd-like and a discharge of bacterial vaginosis is grayish and has a fishy odour. The discharge of gonorrhea is purulent and yellow. Chlamydia discharge may be yellowh or milky white in color. But the distinction may not be obvious. So the best thing to do is to get tested.

2.)do itching occur on the inside of vagina or the top of it like the head of it

Well, itching may or may not be present in STDs.

Again the best thing to do is to get tested to confirm the diagnosis.

3.) Do burning occur while Urinating ..ALL these is relating to women not men at all

Burning may happen with chlamydia or gonorrhea infection but not with other STDs like syphilis, herpes.

So again if you suspect that you may have a STD, it is better to get tested.

Let me know if you have more questions.
