Please , I can tell you more details. The cut was 12 h old, half a day, and it was a small cut on his finger.
The contact was just for few seconds for sure and there wasn't wounds from major dental surgery in my mouth. I cleaned my mouth in few minutes later.
Please help me.

Hi there and thank you for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Online Helpline.

There is no risk of HIV from this situation. Saliva contains an enzyme that prevents HIV from being transmitted. Small mouth injuries such as small cuts from biting your tongue or cheek do not provide access to the bloodstream for HIV to be transmitted.

For more information about HIV you can always visit the AIDS Vancouver website or CATIE.ca.

I hope this information helps to answer your questions.
