Virus vs. Allergy: If he has a virus, you are at risk for developing the same illness if exposed. It sounds likely to be a virus due to the fever and chills, which do not occur with allergy.

Infection: First of all, you certainly shouldn't be kissing him when he's sick! if you are around him in the same room then avoid close contact or using his towels, blankets, or utensils until he feels better. Good luck!
