I had sex with someone who I had oral herpes and after she kiss my neck 4 days later I have an itch on my neck is that a sign of an infection?

Yes: The herpes virus is transmitted by contact and bodily fluids. It is known that mothers transmit the herpes virus to their children when they kiss them.
The sore would have to betin as a red, blistered area which is filled with fluid which contains the live virus. An itch on your neck could be from the oral herpes virus. The period lasts 7-10 days.....
Do not touch it with your hands. ...Read more

Odds of getting herpes from a kiss on the neck?

Odds of getting herpes from a kiss on the neck?

Slim: There is a small chance that herpes simplex virus I or II can be transmitted when lesions/sores are not present. It's possible that infected people "shed" the virus without any symptoms. Herpes is not spread by contact with saliva. It is spread by contact with skin where herpes virus is present. It is unlikely, even with a lesion on the lip that kissing someone on the neck will transmit the virus ...Read more

I have pimples on my hand in one area and place, last time somebody kissed me was on my neck only. Could it be herpes?

Shingles?: If one hand is the only site of the pimple-like rash, herpes zoster (shingles) seems like a good possibility. I doubt it I from the kiss on the neck. She should ask the clinic about shingles testing and treatment. Treatment can speed healing and, most important, can help prevent later pain in the area (post-herpetic neuralgia). But treatment must be started early to do any good. ...Read more

Can mono be contagious if someone who has it kisses you on the neck? I quickly used hand sanitizer on the area and took a hot shower.

I had mono about 2 months ago, the only thing left is the neck pain. Does this mean I can never kiss anyone again?

No!!: Mononucleosis is spread by kissing, and sharing drinks, like many viruses. When you are well, without fever, you can participate in your usual activities as tolerated. Certainly, you can kiss someone. There is always a risk of getting a virus this way, but no worse than usual! Do avoid sharing cups and utensils with others. ...Read more

Can a kiss with a girl that has herpes on the neck with no visible or oral legions cause herpes on the neck? And if so how long will it take symptoms

Can a kiss with a girl that has herpes on the neck with no visible or oral legions cause herpes on the neck? And if so how long will it take symptoms

Herpes: 90% of those who get herpes do not get lesions, sores or symptoms. Blood testing for an acute exposure takes two routes. There is igm and igg antibody testing. The igm, if positive, is a sign of a new or acute infection. Igg antibodies represents a previous or 'older' infection. One cannot rely upon symptoms to tell them they have been exposed to a new herpes infection. ...Read more

I have a bruise on neck resembling a hickey. Possible causes? No kissing or injury to the area. I do have swollen lymph nodes in the region.

I have a bruise on neck resembling a hickey. Possible causes? No kissing or injury to the area. I do have swollen lymph nodes in the region.

Get a medical check: This bruise could be from any kind of injury or bump. But your enlarged lymph glands concern me even more. So the best course of action is to have your doctor check your lymph nodes as well as your bruised area. A blood count (cbc) may be able to rule out any obvious cause of bleeding (bruises).If the lymph nodes are larger than one centimeter or if they enlarge further, then a biopsy of the node be. ...Read more

I get a herpes blister on my neck. Can I transmit the virus through kissing or intercourse if my parter doesn't come in contact with the sore itself?

I get a herpes blister on my neck. Can I transmit the virus through kissing or intercourse if my parter doesn't come in contact with the sore itself?

Maybe risk orally: If the herpes diagnosis is correct, the main risk is from direct contact with sore. Probably HSV1, originally acquired orally. If so, maybe a chance you have virus in the mouth during your neck outbreaks; probably best to avoid kissing or performing oral sex at those times. It's unlikely you have a genital infection, so no risk from intercourse. She could be tested to see if infected and immune. ...Read more

29 days ago I kissed a unknown girl on her vagina with just my lips. Now I have lymph nodes and rashes on my neck. Is this related to hiv ars? Freaking out

Doesn't transmit HIV: Many things are possible in life, even if rare, so do the math. There are about 320 million people in the U.S.; 160 million are female. About 80% of them are older teens and adults, which is 128, 000, 000 people. About 25% of the 1.2 million HIV-infected people here are women, which is 300, 000 people. The chance of an UNKNOWN woman just having HIV is 300, 000 / 128, 000, 000 = 0.0023 = only 1 in 500. ...Read more

What happens if you leave gonorrhea of the throat untreated and kiss someone?

What happens if you leave gonorrhea of the throat untreated and kiss someone?

Two bad ideas: Gonorrhea of the throat is very common and a person owes it both to himself/herself and anybody else who's special to be treated at once. A kiss that's more than a peck can transmit the infection, and I suspect that it's often missed by physicians since there's no history of "oral sex". Love's beautiful and all really good lovers are responsible. ...Read more

Can STDs like clamydia and gonerrhea be passed by kissing if the infection is in the throat.

Unknown: Chlamydia, for example, can cause an infection of the throat. The transmissability of this infection is completely unknown. It should be treated with the same regimen of antibiotics used to treat the genital infection and I would avoid contact until it is cleared up.;. ...Read more

Possibly: This is a reasonable assumption, although devoid of proof unless both you and your gf are seen and cultured and this is actually Strep. If this is viral, again without proof there is only a high likelihood that she transmitted it to you, but possibly not. ...Read more

A guy and I are each other's first kiss and the next day he said his throat hurts but I'm fine. It's been three days and he says his throat still hurts?

Viral pharyngitis?: Kissing easily passes minor viruses, like common cold or pharyngitis, and cold viruses often are carried without symptoms. OTOH, even the next day is too soon; it generally takes 2-3 days for cold symptoms to show up. Maybe just a coincidence; he could have caught viral pharyngitis from someone else. Anyway, probably not serious; his symptoms probably will clear up in a couple of days. ...Read more

If you had strep throat and oral kissing or oral sex occurs could strep throat get transmitted?

Sure can!: Bacteria are great space invaders if given the opportunity from mouth to mouth. Mouth to genitals will not give your vagina "strep" throat as it is a different "orifice". Alpha streptococcus is commonly found in the vagina and beta strep is the pathogen for strep throat. ...Read more

Can I kiss my girlfriend I had mono and its been 2 months he checked and didn't see anything in my throat and said I was fine?

Probably no risk: Most are very contagious in the first 3 wks, a few for 3 months but occasionally you can shed this virus in saliva intermittently for years. Many young adults already had this as kids when it was mild and overlooked as a minor virus. If she had it she is immune and was never at risk. ...Read more

When do you feel the symptoms of mono? I kissed like 4 people when I was drunk a few days ago and my throat started hurting today.

Could be: Symptoms usually occur 4-6 days after exposure so it's possible. Could just be a non mono sore throat.

Nearly all humans acquire EBV infection at some point in their lives. Interestingly it may be a majority that get it as children. They are then immune. This explains why the kissing disease only affects some people who kiss. ...Read more
