Brief Answer:
No risk of HIV

Detailed Answer:
Hello. Thank you.
I am Dr kakkar (Dermatologist and Venereologist).
I have gone through your query and I have noted your concern.
There is no risk of HIV through this particular physical contact. Kissing on skin of neck is absolutely safe and if you did not notice any blood while kissing on her neck, that means there was no blood or else you would have noticed it!! Even if we hypothetically assume that she had a wound on her neck, then also it had to be an actively bleeding wound and her blood to come in contact with your lips for her to pose a risk of HIV. Since you did not notice any blood or wound on her neck, so relax. You were not at risk of HIV from this incident.

Brief Answer:
Regarding risk of HIV

Detailed Answer:
Hi.
If your lip wound was actively bleeding and you kissed an actively bleeding wound on her neck then there is a risk of HIV. Not otherwise. However you earlier said that she was not bleeding from neck!

Hi, I am considering having laser hair removal, am HIV+ and currently on medication, but fit and healthy. Is there any reason why I would not be advised to have the procedure? I have not told the clinician of my status nor do I plan to, however are there any risks associated with the procedure or could it have an adverse effect due to the medications?

Hi, I went to a Massage center last week and had Oral Sex with the worker over there. She performed annilingus on mine and also Fellatio on me but with food plastic wrap in between her mouth and my penis. I m worried that I got HIV or some other STD s because I m now experiencing minor Aches, pain in fingers of my hand and tingy ness and numbness sometimes. I did in-home Ora quick test and it resulted in negative but still worried as I m in Window period.

uhm, Heya... i find it hard to believe i'm doing this, but: I'm an 18 year old male, about 1.90m tall.. today my girlfriend came over and had condoms with her, thinking that we could do something that none of us have done before (if you catch my drift), normaly i have an errection everytime we're kissing and getting a bit "kinky", but when i tried to put the condom on, or even reach for it, my errection just vanished, each time... is it all in my mind or is there something i can do to overcome this shyness problem? (ps. this took me completley by suprise and everything)
