Hello! I am currently struggling with the same issue! Me and my ex used to practice oral often, and now I'm dealing with this. I have the same looking swollen taste buds on the sides of my tounge, as well as some underneath. I am very afraid to go to a dr and figure out what it is. I don't want to face the fact it may be an incurable std. I have been so depressed over this and have thought about killing myself over it. I have also had a sore throat and a headache to go along with it. If anyone can shed a little light on the issue, please do! I feel so alone in all of this and I don't know what to do! Ps, I checked my boyfriend and he has no signs of any of my symptoms.. And we both lost out virginity to each other! Could it still be hpv? And can I kiss anyone with this?View Thread
