A few weeks ago, I had a very sore throat a week after performing oral sex on a partner. This sore throat was accompanied by very bad body aches, a low-grade fever, a slightly red sore throat & peeling hands (a symptom usually associated with strep throat). I am extremely susceptible to strep and get it as much as twice a year ever since I was a little girl. To me, this infection seemed to me like strep (I get it often so I know the feeling!) & from what I have read about gonorrhea/chlamidya, the sore throat is very mild with those diseases and not accompanied by other symptoms. After about 3 days, the illness went away & I have felt completely normal ever since. Could this be gonorrhea/chlamidya or could this be a normal throat infection such as strep? Please help! Smile Thanks!

Hi,
Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out. From the description of the symptoms, it typically looks like streptococcal sore throat. As now you’re perfectly fine, so that’s good news. Gonorrhoea and Chlamydia infections seem highly unlikely in your case. Moreover, as you have recovered from the illness, so you need not worry at all. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
