Of course you’re being careful not to get sexually transmitted diseases, but some illnesses can be spread just by kissing. Anytime you get close enough to someone to share bodily fluids, you should be questioning that person’s history. If someone you want to kiss is clearly sick, you need to hold off on the intimacy until that person feels better. Here are some illnesses you can come down with if you kiss someone who has it.

The Common Cold is a Possibility

A cold isn’t the worst thing that will ever happen to you, but you probably don’t want to deal with it. A cold can make you sniffly, cause a cough or make your nose drippy. In other words, you’ll be overall miserable. Kissing a partner who has a cold makes it pretty likely that you’ll get one too. It’s probably better to take a break.


Mono Can Be Passed through Kissing

Mono, which is short for mononucleosis, can be spread through saliva, so kissing is one of the easiest ways to come down with it. It’s often called the “kissing disease.” It can cause symptoms that include sore throat, swollen lymph nodes, fever, fatigue, headache, rash and a swollen spleen. Coming down with mono can sideline you for several weeks so tell your significant other to back off for a few days.


You Can Get Gum Disease

If you’re a mom, you’ve probably been cautioned not to share utensils with your baby. That’s because you can pass bacteria that leads to cavities and gum disease this way. The same is true for kissing. When you make out with someone, you can wind up with some of their mouth bacteria in your mouth. Make sure you brush and floss well to help kill it off and keep your teeth and gums healthy.


The Herpes Virus is a Danger

I’m not talking about the STD. There is a strain of the herpes virus that can lead to cold sores on the mouth and lips. If the person you’re kissing has an active cold sore or feels one coming on, you can wind up with the virus. That means you’ll suffer with cold sores for the rest of your life since there really is no cure for the virus. A cold sore coming on causes tingling so make sure your partner stays alert so you stay safe.


Meningitis Can Spread through Kissing

Meningitis causes inflammation in the membranes around your brain and spine. Untreated, it can lead to death, so it pays to make sure you don’t get it. Meningitis can be passed through saliva so kissing someone who has it might mean you have it too. Meningitis is nothing to mess around with, so if you find out you’ve kissed someone who has the illness, see your doctor right away.


Hepatitis B is a Concern

There is no cure for hepatitis, so you want to make sure you never put yourself in a position where you could get it. The disease affects your kidneys and can lead to some very serious consequences. The chance of hepatitis B passing when you kiss goes up if you have open sores or scrapes in your mouth.


Warts Can Spread Too

If the person you’re kissing had a recent outbreak of warts or has a current outbreak, you can wind up with them too. Warts are caused by a virus so that means they can be passed from person to person.

Are you surprised to see what can happen when you kiss someone who is sick?

Where Thoughts and Opinions Converge

Cold sores is herpes! Herpes is HSV 1 and HSV 2 they are both herpes. The difference is that HSV 1 prefers to rest in the human face. HSV 2, prefers to rest in the humans genital. Just because its in your genital its not a STD. You can get HSV 1 in your genital and have HSV 2 in your face. Plz educate yourself, Herpes is more common than we all think.

Yes.... This is incorrect info. Angie is dead on. And 1 in 4 sexually people have genital herpes. 80% of the adult population get cold sores. This is not so uncommon. On top of that the virus is always present and can be spread even when the carrier has no symptoms due to viral shedding. Please refrain from putting info out there that is incorrect. It's adds to the stigma and helps spread the problem.

Good to know:).... And I didn't know that moms shouldn't share baby's utensils! Glad to know!

It is actually possible to treat hep B into being cured, i believe

Im glad i never kissed before and after that post specifically i doubt i'd ever kiss someone for the rest of my life!!!
