Six weeks I have had inflamed taste buds around the tip of my tongue. I have also had two painless ulcers on one side of my tongue. There are probably others but these are not noticeable. I find that anti bacterial mouthwashes tend to make the situation worse. I also don't have any trouble when I am asleep. To set the scene I am worried that these symptoms are as a result of oral sex I have to a hooker about 6 weeks ago. I went to the STI Clinic at 3 weeks post exposure and the doctor tested me for swabs/oral Chla Gon Herpes also blood tests for HIV Syph and urine for Chla Gon but all results are negative. I will go back in 3 months to check bloods etc again.
My worry is that my mouth symptoms are herpes or HPV even although doctor said she didn't think it was herpes Chla or Gon and he said probably thrush as a result of stress-relationship now in meltdown due to my idiotic behaviour.
I don't have any white patches and there is no pain just this burning sensation which comes and goes. I don't see any obvious ulcers in my throat etc.
Would love to know what you guys think and if there are any other guys in the same or similar situation. Any advice would be great as I am very worried about this and would hate to pass this to my children/family.
Also if you could let me know how to upload a photo for thisView Thread
