My girlfriend has strep throat and started antibiotics today

Patient: My girlfriend has strep throat and started antibiotics today ( Friday ) and I will see her in a week ( next Friday ). Will it be okay to kiss her?

Doctor: Hello,Thanks for the query.It is recommended that you avoid oral contact like kissing and sexual intercourse atl east for 2 weeks, since there are chances of transmission of the bacteria even after a recent antibiotic treatment.Hence, it is recommended not to kiss her for 2 weeks after the antibiotics.Hope this helped.Regards
