Getting A Sore Throat From Kissing? Does It Really Happen

Getting a sore throat from kissing does happen a lot and it is something you should try to avoid. The most important thing is if your partner or the person you are going to kiss is sick and has a sore throat then avoid kissing them. The symptoms of a sore throat should be obvious and usually the persons voice will sound different.

Kissing does transfer a lot of bacteria so this is definitely something you should try to avoid if you are worried about getting a sore throat. I have personally gotten a sore throat after kissing my girlfriend a few years back, regrettably I knew she was sick and I still did it. The next day I woke up with a dry sore throat which was extremely painful and lasted for a full week before I got better.

Kissing is normal in a relationship but the best advice I can give is to make sure the person you are going to kiss isn't sick with a sore throat at the time. Remember an infected throat or sore throat usually is full of bacteria, this can be easily transferred through an exchange of saliva which occurs through kissing.

So Remember:

- Don't kiss a sick person.
- Lip kissing is safer then tongue kissing.
- Tongue kissing transfers more saliva and bacteria.
