Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXX,
Thanks for writing in to us.

I have read through your query in detail.
Please find my observations below.

1. If there are no sores in the mouth and the person has only kissed you on the skin then there are extremely less chances of STD.

2. Please let us know the exact incident which happened with you.

3. Only examples of infections transmitted by kissing are Herpes and mononucleosis which might occur in mouth to mouth kissing. Mouth to neck kissing is usually harmless.

Hope this answers your question. Please feel free to correct any oversight in my interpretation of your problems and discuss them in detail as per your requirements.

Hope your query is answered.
Do write back if you have any doubts.
