Symptoms You Will Experience If You Have Contacted Kissing Disease.

According to healthline, "kissing disease" is a common name for the viral infection known as infectious mononucleosis, or "mono" for short. This condition is caused by the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), which is transmitted through close contact with an infected person's saliva, such as through kissing or sharing utensils.

The symptoms of mono can include:

- Fatigue

- Sore throat

- Swollen lymph nodes in the neck and armpits

- Fever

- Headache

- Muscle aches

- Rash

Most people who get mono will recover within a few weeks, but some people may experience fatigue and other symptoms for several months. Treatment for mono typically involves rest, fluids, and over-the-counter pain relievers to help manage symptoms.

It's important to note that not everyone who gets mono will have symptoms, and some people may only have mild symptoms. However, people who have weakened immune systems, such as those with HIV/AIDS or those who have received an organ transplant, may be at greater risk of developing serious complications from mono.
