Possibly mono: Are you having fatigue and swollen lymph nodes around your neck? It may be infectious mononucleosis (kissing disease). Go see your doc.

Sores from kissing: hello ! Mono has an incubation period of 4-6 weeks so you kiss and get sick 1 and a half months later. This is unlikely to be MONO unless you kissed someone 6 weeks ago. You'd be sicker too. These are probably common herpes oral lesions. Dont kiss or have oral sex and they are VERY infectious for the next 10 days. thanks
