I have mono right now, and I was wondering after I get rid of mono and no longer have it how long would I have to wait to kiss my bf, ?
No good answers: First, once you are infected with EBV, the virus that causes Mono, you will carry it for the rest of your life, although it is latent meaning it does not cause symptoms. Because the virus is still in your body, there is always the chance that you can pass it to others. Most people become infected with EBV at some time during their life, so there is a chance that your boyfriend is already infected. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

A week or more: I've seen cases where the rash faded in about a week & some that were faintly visible for a bit longer. As long as any residual Amoxicillin is still being absorbed in the GI tract it can stimulate rash production after you stop the med. That is usually finished in a day or so after stopping. ...Read more
