painful bump at the roof of my mouth. Appears to be others

User Profile
I had a sexual encounter with a girl that was protected intercourse but unprotected oral given and received 6 weeks ago. The next day my throat begin to feel funny and the following day it became a sore throat then two days later I began to suffer from flu like symptoms chills, muscle aches, fever of 100.4, headache, swollen tonsils, and severe sore throat. Most of those symptoms only lasted 2-3 days but the sore throat lingered for about 7 days. Went to the ER when I noticed a pus/mucus like substance on my tonsils. The strep test came back negative and they just said I had a viral illness. Since I begin to worry my genitals and my face around my mouth begin to itch more. I noticed a hair bump above my groin a week or so later and I also had a bump occur in my anus. Last week I noticed a painful sore at the roof of my mouth which lasted about 5 days.There is now another small painful bump at the roof of my mouth. Appears to be others surrounding it. Do symptoms seem std related?

Hi, and thanks for your query on eHealth forum!

Since doctors suspect a viral illness and since you had a history of unprotected oral intercourse, it would be advisable to get a complete STD panel done, especially HPV, herpes, syphilis and HIV.

Though oral sex is a less common method of STD transfer than vaginal/anal intercourse, in sex workers and others who have had multiple partners, it is known to be a common method of transmitting STDs.

Hence, get a STD panel. If it is negative, then the sores/itc etc can be non-STD viral infection. Take multivitamins, eat healthy, drink plenty of water and if symptoms are not STD related, they will subside soon.

Please discuss with your treating doctor and it is advisable to discuss your sexual history under full confidence. Hope this helps. Take care!
