Diseases Caused By Kiss
Although many offer health benefits, but a kiss can also be a medium of transmission of disease-causing viruses and bacteria. Viruses and bacteria in saliva or blood can spread from one person to another by kissing. Here are some diseases that can be transmitted through kissing
The Virus is considered part of the herpes family including Epstein-Barr, varicella-zoster virus (the cause of chickenpox) and herpes simplex (cold sores cause). Herpes simplex virus can be spread through direct contact with the virus while kissing.
Herpes is most easily spread to others when the lesions are formed or has erupted. This Virus can ‘ shed ‘ (spread to other people) from the location of lychee even when herpes has cured. While chickenpox is easily spread from person to person through direct contact, droplet or airborne spread of drool.
Actually this disease is caused by a virus called Epstein-Barr virus, as quoted from Wikipedia, this virus is one type of herpes virus. His name is quite unique, Infectious mononucleosis or EBV infectious mononucleosis, Pfeiffer’s disease, Filatov’s disease or bekennya called mono.
The disease was first described by Sprunt and Evans in a bulletin distributed at Johns Hopkins Hospitals in 1920. Symptoms that appear as a result of the spread of this virus is a sore throat, fever, anxiety, discomfort in the body, inflammation, nausea and loss of appetite. This disease also affects some part of the body and triggers the formation of other illnesses, such as strep throat and hepatitis.
Infection is spread through the exchange of saliva, and past the incubation period for approximately 4-6 weeks. Generally, the symptoms will be felt over the past 2-3 weeks and last for several months. Friends of this disease can be treated and cured, it just generally attacking someone in quite a long time. Tend to be when infected people will hunt an antibiotic as early treatment. In this case, the antibiotic can not help mitigate virus attacks.
Glandular fever or kissing disease
Glandular fever is a generic term for viral infection called Mononucleosis, an infection caused by the Epstein-Barr virus. The Virus is spread through saliva and infection occurs through contact.
Flu and colds
A cold is transmitted through direct contact with the virus. You can get the flu from infected salivary droplets or from direct contact with secretions (mucus and fluid) from the nose and throat of an infected person.
Kissing can also transmit the virus, although the blood had higher levels of the virus than saliva. Infection can occur when blood and saliva of the infected come into contact directly with someone else’s blood flow or mucous membranes. Someone is more likely to be infected while kissing if they both have open sores in or around the mouth.
Warts in the mouth can be spread through kissing, especially if there are areas that previously experienced trauma or injury.
Neisseria Meningitidis Disease
