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?
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?
Got pimples on her hand in 1 area, last time somebody kissed her was on the neck&it was six days ago. She asked the clinic&he said it might be a virus?
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

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
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.
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?
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
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
Possible: Herpetic infections can me transimitted to open wounds via salivary contact. Many other host diseases can be transmitted to others through direct contact. Grandparents or parents with oral diseases transmit them to the children. Families enjoy much the same bacteria. Avoid infected people. Especally kissing or other direct contact. If you are infected don't kiss around. ...Read more

Umm my girlfriend has a slowwel gland and I kissed her do I have it now cuz my throat just recently started hurting?
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
Depends: A patient is considered not contagious to the general public after 24 hours on a penicillin like med. I would give it an extra day or two for a more intimate setting. You may already be incubating the illness unless you have been away. Have it checked out if you develop symptoms. ...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

Can ngu in the throat be spread by kissing an infected person? What are the symptoms in the throat?
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
