4 Dangerous Sexual Diseases You Can Contact From Kissing Your Partner

Meningitis b.

Meningitis is a potentially fatal illness that results in inflammation of the brain and spinal cord. This illness can spread from person to person by respiratory secretions. Saliva is shared when kissing, potentially spreading the illness to the other person. More than 1,000 people lost their lives in Nigeria during the meningitis outbreak that year. There are several symptoms and indicators that can point to an infection. The only treatment for this illness is a healthy lifestyle and a robust immune system, which can help you defeat it.

Cytomegalovirus, second.

The cytomegalovirus, often known as CMV, is contagious when saliva from an infected person is directly touched. CMV can be disseminated by the use of urine, blood, semen, and breast milk, which all carry the virus.

It is also regarded as an STD and frequently transmitted through genital, anal, and oral contact. CMV infection can cause fatigue, a sore throat, a fever, and muscle aches.

The symptoms of CMV may not manifest at all since it is a chronic condition. CMV symptoms could resemble herpes if you have a compromised immune system.

Polio comes in third place.

In children under the age of five, viral poliomyelitis is extremely infectious. The virus can spread through contaminated water and food. Once it makes its way into the nervous system through the colon, it can lead to paralysis.

Some of the symptoms include a fever, aching limbs, tiredness, headaches, and neck stiffness. Polio is incurable, despite the fact that routine childhood vaccines have virtually eliminated the disease in the United States.

The fourth place is Syphillis.

Despite being the most common means of transmission, kissing can nevertheless result in the spread of syphilis. This is because syphilis-related mouth sores can be spherical, contagious, and open. Syphilis can be treated with antibiotics prescribed by a doctor.

Other STIs including HIV, chlamydia, and gonorrhea are less likely to be spread by kissing (unless one of you have a cut or sore in your mouth).
