Expert Q & A Answers About deep kissing

Is it possible to get an STD from kissing someone?

I recently started dating after a divorce and it seems that each date ends with a kiss. Is it possible to get an STD from kissing someone? I always make sure she doesn’t have any visible cold sores, but I’m still concerned that I could get a more serious STD like HIV. I read that this is only possible if there is visible blood in her mouth (from something like flossing). Is there any STD that is transmitted via saliva?

I intimately kissed a girl...a few days later I noticed a white sore under my tongue and then a red sore on my lip. Are these STD symptoms?

I intimately kissed a girl, and few days later I got a small white sore under my tongue and then on my lower inside lip. And now I have a small light red sore on my outside lip and it itches. Are these symptoms of an STD?
