Hi XXXXXXX
Thanks for writing in to Healthcare Magic!
Saliva does not have HIV virus so smooch would not cause aids.
If you have any further query please let me know I would try to answer it for you.
Wish you a great health!

Okay dude go ahead but remain alert, the next things may not be as safe as the smooch.
Do you remember the TV Commercial, Mukkaddar ka sikander- so don't forget the condoms which are the only effective barrier precaution for HIV.
If you have any further query please let me know I would try to answer it for you.
Wish you a great health!

There are diseases which can spread by smooch also like Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C and Infectious mononucleosis or glandular fever to name a few.
So better to practice these behaviours with a faithful and known partner only.
If you have any further query please let me know I would try to answer it for you.
Wish you a great health!

Hi XXXXXXX
Welcome back to Healthcare Magic!
Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C take about two months to manifest and Infectious mononucleosis or glandular fever takes about two weeks to be symptomatic.
You can also get blood tests for them by that time.If you have any further query please let me know I would try to answer it for you.
Wish you a great health!
