This is not STD related. You should follow-up with your medical provider.

even if that person had std or herpes, it should not transmit that way by a drop of saliva?

very unlikely.
Talking about std testing is NORMAL and something we all should be doing EVERY TIME before we have sex with a new partner :)

no I don't think it's eye herpes!!!


saliva is a poor way to transmit std's in general. many more common infections like the common cold are easily transmitted through saliva though as well as just being within 3 feet of someone and breathing.
