Common Questions and Answers about Strep throat and kissing

Avatar f tn Your girlfriend is right, that she is not at significant risk of strep from either kissing you or by oral sex. But her reasons (and yours) may be the wrong ones. Assuming you and she have been in close contact in the past several weeks, with kissing, having sex, touching, and perhaps sharing eating utensils, kitchens, and toilets, there's a good chance she already is carrying the strep that caused your sore throat.
Avatar n tn I just finished tongue kissing my girlfriend who has strep. She's been on penicillin for 72 hours, how likely is it I will contract it. I'm really scared because I just got over strep which really messed me up for three months with all these complications.
Avatar m tn A cold, strep throat. You receiving oral has nothing to do with your throat.
Avatar m tn i am having severe tonsils and sore throat since had intercourse 5monhs back with results-ve. Doctor gave medicines but did'nt work.CBC and IGE levels were normal. What is the cause of such severeness?
Avatar f tn Every illness with both sore throat and fever should be professionally evaluated. The concern is not STDs, but strep throat, mononucleosis, etc. But if no real fever, you can safely just sit tight and wait for it to clear up on its own -- but still see a doctor if sore throat lasts more than another week or so.
Avatar f tn What you are describing sounds more like strep throat. Do you have a fever? Strep throat can be quite painful when swallowing and cause a general feeling of malaise, with whitish "dots" appearing in the back of your throat. If left untreated, strep throat can lead to other more serious complications. You should seek medical attention.
Avatar n tn I was diagnosed with Strep Throat Wednesday and began antibiotics that night. When is the soonest I can kiss my boyfriend without getting him sick (long distance relationship and he arrives Friday night)?

Avatar f tn nothing hurt but its just odd and i need a possible answer. i had strep throat as a child and i read that it doesnt re occur in adults.
Avatar n tn Nonprescription over the counter drugs of ibuprofen and paracetamol (acetaminophen) both help relieve throat pain and reduce fever. The symptoms of strep throat usually improve even without treatment in five days, but the patient is contagious for several weeks. Lack of treatment or incomplete treatment of strep throat can lead to various complications.Antibiotics like penicillin or cephalosporins (for penicillin-allergic patients.)can be used.
Avatar f tn Can strep throat cause a false positive on a syphilis test? I believe my risk to be low>zero but since in theory syphilis can be transmitted by deep kissing I want to get tested. Next Wednesday will be six weeks post exposure. The problem is I've deep kissed my wife and my daughter stuck a whistle in her mouth that had my saliva on it. If I'm in incubation period supposedly a sore doesn't have to be contacted to pass the bacteria. Now for the second problem.
Avatar f tn After kissing my partner a week ago, he started getting canker sores, a headache, and a sore throat. Even though its only been a week, can HIV symptoms show up this quickly? Or is this just being mistaken for mono or strep throat? What is my boyfriend going through.
Avatar n tn I decided to visit a Doctor and was diagnosed with Strep throat (positive from a swab test and visual throat 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 Then why i have a nasty strep throat with white patches and pus ? ? i got like this after 3 days after the exposure. im really worry i cried .
Avatar n tn You won't get an std from kissing and fingering, but if you aren't feeling well, you should see your doctor. You can get colds, flus, and strep from kissing.
Avatar n tn i had noticed a yellowish pus filled looking spot on the back of my throat last week. it never hurt at all, just felt like i had something stuck in the back of my throat. it had been there a few days. then it went away. now i notice tonight it is back and there is some white spots all the way in the back of my throat. i have not had a sore throat at all during any of this, but i have been feeling more tired than usual lately. not sure if im just sleep deprived or if its something else.
Avatar m tn so i went to the clinic strep throat check up because i had a bad case of mono three years back, but the doctor said it looked more viral then strep throat, should i be worried of hsv-1. and how long do flu like symptoms of hsv-1 last. after 3-4 days the sore throat is going away, still having a dry cough and runny nose. P.S. if one was to get hsv-2 from oral to genital contact could that person give hsv-2 from oral to oral contact.
Avatar n tn Then, she took a throat culture and sent it off to the lab to test for other strep types. It came back positive for Step Group C. For the last 5 days, I’ve been taking a Penicillin twice a day. Rx goes for 5 more days. 1) Is it true that after 24 hours on antibiotics, I am no longer contagious? 2) The white streaks still appear on the back of my throat and on my right tonsil. Is this cause for concern?
Avatar m tn In the time frame since, I have had about 2 incidents of sore throat or strep throat per year and very recently developed folliculitis on my neck from shaving and developed a white tongue after being on 4 courses of antibiotics in 3 months (for my throat and had a wisdom tooth out). Am I worrying too much?

Avatar n tn My partner is on medication and is now undetectable. This morning he and I engaged in heavy kissing and I gave him a rim job. He was clean down there, however I have a gash/cut on my lip. It is not bleeding but you can see the underneath membrane and it does hurt a bit, More so than chapped lips would. Should I be concerned about transmission? Thanks!
Avatar f tn I did french kiss loong time and some weeks after, I had sore throat and since 6-7 days i hardly swallow.I feel my throat is tight. Do i have any chance to infected hiv ? If she is HIV +...Any possibility ? Im so stress out....
Avatar m tn Outside of my marriage, I had unprotected cunnilingus for about 30 minutes on Thursday. Saturday I developed a minor sore throat and noticed that my tonsils are covered in a white pus. Could I have contracted oral gonorrhea or another STD? Should I avoid kissing my wife? I'm feeling very ashamed of my actions and am terrified I've done something that could get my wife sick.
Avatar m tn no kissing. and is strep throat passed on by oral sex? i've looked into that possibility but I've not found any evidence that it might be strep throat my docs appointment in next week so we'll see what it is.
