How does kissing give you herpes?

Herpes can spread through skin-to-skin contact or contact with saliva. It is, therefore, possible to get herpes from kissing. People can also contract oral herpes from oral sex and sharing objects that have come into contact with the saliva of someone with the infection.

How much exposure does it take to get herpes?

The average incubation period for an initial herpes infection is 4 days (range, 2 to 12) after exposure. The vesicles break and leave painful ulcers that may take two to four weeks to heal after the initial herpes infection.
