In brief: 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.
