Syphilis from kissing

So a guy I like from Home has syphilis. I haven’t seen him for months since I’ve been at uni, and I won’t have sex with him obviously but could I catch it from kissing him?
Try researching it on google and or ask someone at your local sexual health clinic.
It depends on where his lesions are - they're really the infectious bits of him.

Presumably he's being treated wherever diagnosed this? Treatment with antibiotics is effective and he should be fine after two weeks of it finishing... you could schedule a kissing date for then.
