Hello, I'm a 14 year old male. I have had oral sex with another male once about 2 years ago and recently I have been having oral sex(female) and vaginal sex. I'm her first everything (kiss, sex etc) About 2 1/2 months ago I had strep throat in 2 different occasions. I looked in the mirror after my strep was gone. My tonsils had flesh colored bumps going around them. Last week I have had a sore throat and my tonsils are swelling up again. The bumps aren't going away and I don't know what to do about them. Are they herpes? Or am I getting strep again? Please help.
