Kissing is not a risk for hiv infection, no matter what sort of spin you can think of to put on it. Not only is saliva not infectious, but it also contains over a dozen different proteins and enzymes that damage hiv and render it unable to infect.

However, depending on what, exactly, is causing your mouth ulcer, you could possibly pass that condition on to him. For example, if the ulcer is caused by the herpes virus, you could give him herpes. Anytime you have any sort of lesion on your body, it's best to not let it come into direct contact with someone else's body. That's not just for their protection, but also yours. You don't want any bacterial infections, do you.

HIV is certainly character-building. It's made me see all of the shallow things we cling to, like ego and vanity. Of course, I'd rather have a few more T-cells and a little less character. Randy Shilts

Propolis liquid really helped me when I had mouth ulcers. I soaked an earbud with the liquid and dabbed it on my ulcers. Works wonderful, heals quick but tastes aweful. U can get it at a health shop.
