Did you have oral sex?

Customer: replied 16 days ago.
Expert:  Dr. P. Jyoti replied 16 days ago.

If you had oral unprotected sex, this could be an STI. STI like chlamydia and gonorrhea can commonly infect the mouth. It is best to have this checked up, you should go for STI testing. Dont worry, this can be treated with a single course of antibiotics and is fully curable. You should go to your family physician or to a sexual health clinic for testing and medicines.
