Answer:

From what you describe, it is quite unlikely that your symptoms are related to your kissing episode. The majority of your symptoms are suggestive of burning mouth syndrome, however, your description that mouth dryness makes you feel better is a bit unusual. Additional information about burning mouth syndrome will be attached to this reply. Although there is no cure for this annoying condition, it is not transmissible and typically does not worsen over time. There are no cures and treatments are aimed at making the condition less noticeable. Good luck!
