Common Questions and Answers about Throat infection from kissing

throat

Avatar n tn if she had a hiv, and in her mouth she was bleeding, what is my risk? also, can i get anything else ilight>fromilight> ilight>kissingilight>? something that would last this long?
Avatar n tn Am i correct in assuming that the only way to transmit a STD through ilight>kissingilight> is by direct contact ilight>fromilight> a sore in their mouth touching an open sore mine? if only one person has a sore, is the other at risk? Also, what are the chances of transmitting STD's this way?
Avatar n tn i've looked everywhere and can't seem to get a clear answer on this, is it possible to get pharyngeal gonorrhea from kissing alone? is is possible to have gonorrhea of the throat without "regular" gonorrhea? About 3 1/2 weeks ago, i received unprotected oral sex. i have NOT experienced any symptoms of gonorrhea, but i am developing a sore throat. there was a lot of deep kissing and was i wondering what risk factor was. Thanks in advance.
Avatar n tn Chlamydia rarely infects the throat and is rarely transmitted by oral sex, and never known to be transmitted by ilight>kissingilight>. Gonorrhea can be in the ilight>throatilight>, but not known to be transmitted by ilight>kissingilight>; and usually doesn't cause sore throat. (the vast majority of oral gonorrhea infections are entirely asymptomatic.) And no, gonorrhea does not travel through the body to show up at additional anatomic sites. i recommend against STD testing, assuming this is your only potential STD exposure.
Avatar f tn i have read everywhere that there is no risk ilight>fromilight> ilight>kissingilight>. However, what if there was slight blood present. This girl was from San Francisco mission area. i am worried to death i had an exposure.
Avatar n tn Grace, would you happen to know what viral illnesses NGU can result ilight>fromilight>? i know that strep ilight>throatilight> can cause it, normal oral flora and a viral infection that is supposedly a member of the HSV (starts with a Cr...something) family but very common among the general pop. and has pretty much little to no symptoms. i am not trying to HJ this thread, just wondering what batch of "bugs" other then HSV can cause this.
Avatar m tn (which makes anyone worried to be worried more...). ilight>fromilight> what i gather, between ilight>throatilight> to ilight>throatilight> ilight>infectionilight> is possible but rare... is my understanding correct? i sincerely thank any and all the comment.
Avatar n tn i was just wondering how common it is to get syphilis ilight>fromilight> french ilight>kissingilight>? i recently went to singapore and kissed a bar girl. This happened about three weeks ago and now im worried sick. My throat is sore and there seems to be a sore spot in my esophagus that i cannot see. She did not have any visible sores on her lips, so im just wondering what the probability is that i could have contracted syphilis. is a sore throat a symptom?
Avatar m tn i don't even know how she can get tested in different countries or if that is even possible. My question is what are my chances of getting any STD ilight>fromilight> deep french ilight>kissingilight>? Please help i am very worried.
Avatar m tn Face is red and itchy - maybe ilight>fromilight> exposure to the sun. i now 4 weeks post possible exposure. Sore ilight>throatilight>. Could the pimple on lip be oral herpes or HPV? Could the acyclovir delay an outbreak by a few days or week? i was told to take on day 7-8 post possible exposure and stopped taking it after 6 days when i got the test result back.
Avatar m tn can you get gonorrea or chlamydia from french kissing a girl?
Avatar m tn Hi, i need to know that if a person acquired HSV2 by kissing, does that increase HiV risk as well ilight>fromilight> the ilight>kissingilight> incident. i am very confused. i used to get cold sores once in every 2 years. However, i got a cold sore 3 days after french kissing at the same spot where i used to get cold sores before. A week to 10 days ater the incident, my throat hurt badly and my neck was stiff. 15-16 days post the kissing incidence, my wisdom tooth apppeared infected and it became difficult to eat.
Avatar m tn both negative at 12 weeks post exposure. Why don't you think it was from recent infection?
Avatar m tn wondering if she has gonorrea of the ilight>throatilight> can i get that ilight>fromilight> her or anything else? could my ilight>throatilight> hurting come ilight>fromilight> her or is it something else?
Avatar f tn Also, i have read that leg pain is a common symptom with acute HiV. i have read everywhere that there is no risk ilight>fromilight> ilight>kissingilight>. However, what if there was blood present. This girl was from San Francisco mission area which has a higher concentration of HiV. i am worried to death i had an exposure. Lastly, i did feel very tired during this period of time and i swore my neck, armpits and groin were hurting or achy. Could all of this be stress and anxiety or should i truly be worried?
Avatar f tn i again went back to searching on internet about the chances of HiV through open mouth ilight>kissingilight>. i found that there are no documented cases apart ilight>fromilight> one where both the partners had bleeding gums. But still i couldn't get it off my mind. Also hiv through kissing is difficult to transmit because of the saliva such is present .Now i am so negative that i usually come up with a counter question.

Avatar n tn HiV is not transmitted by ilight>kissingilight> -French ilight>kissingilight> or otherwise. No one has ever gotten HiV ilight>fromilight> ilight>kissingilight>- this is true even if one or both persons have sores on their mouth or or gum and dental disease- still no risk. there is no medical reason for concern and no reason for testing related to this exposure. i hope this comment is helpful.
Avatar m tn Dear Dr i had deep kissing with a guy of unknown sexual history.i got a wound on a lip at 11 am in morning.it bleed for 5-10 mins and bleeding stopped.i deep kissed guy on same day evening at 5.50 pm.Am i at HiV risk? Do i need to any test? if yes which one i should?
Avatar n tn im little confused the other doctor said its still safe to kiss the girl.i thoght you cannot get the hiv ilight>infectionilight> ilight>fromilight> ilight>kissingilight>. i have kissed her a few more times. the sore just busted and its a little sore so should i get tested for any std or just let it go?
Avatar n tn if you have swollen tonsils and white coating junk, you probably have strep, mono, or a staff ilight>infectionilight>, as they all are contracted ilight>fromilight> a similar virus.
Avatar m tn Finally am i right in thinking that if i had a caught something that it would be an oral ilight>infectionilight> only - ie that if i avoid oral contact with a partner but have sex then i am unlikely to pass on anything to them?
Avatar m tn Activity consisted of french ilight>kissingilight>, receiving unprotected oral ilight>fromilight> her, and then protected vaginal sex. Three days after the encounter my throat started to get rather sore, and that is the only symptom i have (no fever, no genital pain, etc). i've read that if it was an HiV infection, symptoms could include sore throat but would not occur that soon after infection, so i hope i don't have that. But which other STDs could present with sore throat and nothing else three days after exposure?
Avatar n tn i decided to visit a Doctor and was diagnosed with strep ilight>throatilight> (positive ilight>fromilight> a swab test and visual ilight>throatilight> exam). My doctor prescribed Amoxicillin (500mg 3x per day for 10days). i've had a total of 4 oral sex encounters in my life prior to the two other experiences last weekend. i've never had any other type of sexual intercourse (e.g. Anal). My questions: 1)What is the likelihood of the strep infection being misdiagnosed and could i possibly have something else (such as an STD)?
Avatar m tn i been french ilight>kissingilight> a girl for awhile i had a uclers in my mouth and it has busted. i french kissed before and after it busted. i had red spot in the roof of my mouth on in off. i had a sore throat for about a week but no fever. had a neck rash just on one spot in front of the neck i did have shoulder sugery and didnt know if the rash came from that.the rash came day after the sugery. the symptoms been doing this for about 20 days. not all at once. we have done nothing else.
