Kissed a girl infected with herpes, mild sore. Chances of disease contraction?

The girl I kissed has herpes and a mild sore had begun to clear up. We kissed on the lips but not any French kissing, although we have in the past when no sores were present at all. What are the chances that I ve contracted the disease? Also, she thinks she has HIV because of a rash on her stomach. Lets assume she is HIV positive.. Could I contract the virus by kissing an open sore on her mouth?

Psychiatrist 's  Response
Herpes labialis is a condition which erupts when the immunity of the body goes down cause of fever or exertion or stress. It is non-infectious and you need not worry about it. Regarding the later part of the question regarding she having HIV, HIV can spread by kissing on the open oral sore. If you are in doubt , its always advisable to get yourself and your girl checked for HIV.
Hope I am able to solve your concerns.
