receding gums, strep throat, blister on lower lip
Hello, i was diagnosed with strep throat  and have been given amoxicillin to take twice a day for ten days. I noticed my gums are receding and making it very painful to eat, brush my teeth, etc. I also have a blister on my bottom lip, which I've never had before so could i possibly have an std? Or is this all caused by the strep and should go away with the antibiotics?

Are these receding gums new?  

Is the blister a small pimple you can pop or is it more of a cold sore/canker sore type?

When was your last dental visit?

Yes, the receding gums are very new. They started around the same time as the strep throat. The blister is a small pimple and my last dental visit was about two or three months ago.

I would recommend seeing your dentist to get it checked out.  

Its probably not related but it may by worth finding out for sure.  The blister may be a canker sore or cold sore that's triggered by the stress from the strep throat possibly.  

As for the receding gums... that I'm not sure.
