    This girl I like has had glandular fever a year ago. Should I be cautious around her? Is it true that you will never be cured of this disease? Is she now likely to give anyone this fever after kissing them?

    Also how did she get it in the first place? By kissing some guy?

    I don't know much about it but my boyfriend had it a few years ago and I haven't caught it yet! I think you can get it other ways as well, so I wouldn't worry about it too much

    You can get glandular fever without kissing someone. If you're really that concerned about an illness she had a year ago then leave her alone and let her find someone who will kiss her. You seem very immature as you care more about whether she got it from kissing someone than her actual welfare.

    Thought if you get the fever than that's it. You have it for life.

    The virus remains in the body for life but symptoms disappear (the same as any other virus). Thousands of people have glandular fever but don't know it because symptoms never develop - it just lies dormant in the body without ever activating. That means for all you know you might have glandular fever. Just research it if you want to know about it.

    Some people collapse in parks from exhaustion and have to have their friends mum drive their ever more corpse-like body home as their legs can't hold their weight.

    Because I saw that you wanted advice and so I researched it before answering. I'm not an expert by any means but a lot of it is pretty basic knowledge that applies to most viruses.
