Just a few weeks ago my bf came down with a cold, but we still shared food and just pecked one another on the lips. I never got sick, but I stayed away from him for about two weeks till he fully recovered. Once the cold was gone (after about three weeks) On a Sunday, we made out. That Thursday afternoon i got really sick and to find out i had strep throat. My mom said it might have been from work, because that Monday i did a lot of dusting and i suffer from sinus and allergies year round. Also, i get very cold on the job and on my breaks i go to my car and sit in until i eventually start sweating, then go back inside the cold store. I also have a history of getting sore throats (like last year). I asked my bf did he give it to me and he swore that he just had a cold and didn't have sore throat. I became afraid when i was told someone can be a carrier of it. If he is a carrier i thought i would have caught it before now because we make out often. So could it be that i might of just got it from dusting and/or sweating and being in and out of cold air? Or could i myself be a carrier of it?? Thank you!!
