hello,

it could have been an infection, if you have got it too. sunspots or birthmarks don't spread by kissing.

depending on what kind of infection it was, treatment will change:-

viral, bacterial, fungal.

you could send me your photos for me to see the lesion.

meanwhile you could apply neosporin cream on it twice daily for 5 days.

hope this answer was useful. please click on the green accept button if so. any bonus or positive feedback would be appreciated.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
