8 Diseases You Can Catch Just By Kissing
Kissing may not be as sexy after this.
Let’s just say that we should always be on the look-out. We should be aware of who we are going to kiss and make sure before we kiss that they don’t have any contagious diseases that will make us regret for a long time afterwards.

Caused by herpes simplex virus (HSV), they are blister-like sores which may appear on any part of the body but usually around the lip and mouth area. They usually persist for a week to ten days and everyone experiences this at least once in their life.
It is actually called the kissing disease, or the mono. Caused by a virus called Epstein-Barr virus or EBV, it can get transferred via saliva. High fever, swollen lymph glands, and a sore throat are some of the symptoms. Its not a very serious disease and goes away without needing treatment.
