Did she get any test for herpes?
Oral herpes is quite common as I wrote.
It can be present without any symptom.
It is possible to get it as child.
It can be transmitted by kissing without sexual relationship.
As you do not have symptoms, the risk of transmission is less than when there are blisters/ ulcers.
