Did you know, that with just one kiss couples can share more than 500 different types of disease causing germs and viruses. Here are some of the most common diseases and viruses that can be transmitted to each other while kissing:
1) Cold Sores: Cold sores are caused by the herpes virus. They appear as tiny, clear, fluid-filled blisters that form around the mouth and lips. The sores are highly contagious, especially if they are leaking fluid. However, even sores that have scabbed over can be contagious.
2) Common cold and flu viruses can be transmitted very easily through contact with the saliva or nasal secretions of a sick person.
3) Mononucleosis, also known as the “kissing disease,” is easily communicated to others through kissing, as well as sharing food, a cup, utensils or straws
