Hi . recently had threading at a salon , got a cut and slight bleeding .
felt the thread little wet , as the salonist was holding in the mouth and threading.
Are there any chances of infection if the saliva has touched the cut mark?

Thank you for the query.

I would like to know few more things which would help me in suggesting you better:

1.) When did this happen?
2.) How exactly did you get the cut?
3.) Are you sure that she has touched your skin with that part that she had taken in her mouth? Because they normally hold one end of the thread into their mouth for support and do threading with the rest?
4.) Do you know the sexual history of this person?

All these factors come into consideration to answer your query better.

If the person is not infected, then the chances of you getting infected are nil.

Awaiting your reply.

Dr. Mohammed Tauseef.
