Hello Mr XXXXXXX ......
Thanks for your query. I understand your current concern. Though am sorry to tell, yes contact of mucous membrane of lips and saliva is sufficient for transmission of HIV. It is a well documented fact though the chances are lower as compared to sexual route. I would suggest you get an ELISA test for HIV done immediately. By now, you would have crossed the window period or HIV. So, the test would tell you your HIV status with certainity. Do not fear. Wish you a negative result.
