my understanding (and I am NOT a doctor or anything close) that there is a lot
of bacteria in your mouth. Some people, due to cultural, social, or
bacterial reasons will have different types of bacteria in their mouth as you,
ones that you've never encountered before.
So, when you kiss, you probably french kiss, and when you do you exchange those
germs, in turn, effect your throat and give you a bacterial infection.
Cavities, plaque on your teeth, are all caused by bacteria eating and growing
on the food particles left in your mouth after you eat.
You can try using mouthwash afterwards and try to kill the bacteria that enter
your own mouth, or if your close enough to your partner, both use mouth wash
before making out. If you live with them, you can try to convince them
the increase their oral hygiene.
In theory, you'll eventually build up an immunity to his standard regime of
germs in his mouth. You're probably as sensitive as I am! (this used to
happen to me all the time with a previous partner, but since I've become older,
I don't have the problem...but my current partner is better at oral hygiene)
Also, you can talk to your doctor about things that you can do to prevent
this. Obviously no longer kissing is going to be a solution, but I doubt
that will happen. If it becomes a serious issue, and it doesnt go away
within 3 days, go to a doctor and tell them the possible origin!
As some one else pointed out, there are also STI's that can cause oral
infections, ones that are transferred from genitals to/from your
mouth/throat. If you're getting seriously sick, you need to consider that
possibility, that they need to be checked out. He may be a carrier or
host. But that needs to be discussed with a doctor as well.
