In brief: Herpes

Oral herpes you can get by kissing someone with an open cold sore on the lip.
You may even get it by drinking after someone or by smoking their cigarettes. It is a virus that is i the secretions. As long as your lips did not touch the cigarette you are relatively safe. There is another form of herpies you can get from not wearing gloves while working in someone's mouth. You get it on the fingers.
