When can I kiss after strep throat?


If you have been diagnosed with strep throat and have been treated with antibiotics for at least 24-48 hours, it is generally safe to resume kissing. However, it’s important to note that strep throat is highly contagious and can easily spread through close contact with saliva, so it’s always a good idea to take precautions and practice good hygiene to prevent the spread of the infection. This may include regularly washing your hands, avoiding close contact with others who may be sick, and covering your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze. Additionally, if you experience any lingering symptoms or concerns, it’s always best to consult with a healthcare provider for personalized advice.
