Hello there.  I can understand your concern.  No. Its not going to spread like that. Dengue is a disease mainly speard by mosquitoes. No definitely kissing is not going to spread. There are other diseases which could spread due to kissing but definitely dengue in not one of them. Best regards. Dr. Anil kumar jain. Bangalore.
