OK, I have kissed and performed oral sex on about 3 women in the past 2 months. I now have a bunch of small bumps on my lingual frenulum (the part under my tongue where the spit glands are). They look like a bunch of spider eyes. They are painless and most of them are the color of my mouth. They were a bit red yesterday, but not firetruck red. They haven't secreted anything, yet. I'm not sure if they ever will secrete anything. They are all about the thickness of a candle wick and the height of a pencil tip. There is about 10-20 of them. They are not found on the tongue at all, just the lingual frenulum, left and right. Has anyone seen or heard of something like this before?
Thank you for your answer. So you are saying that because hpv and herpes carry such a small percentage of bump causation, it is improbable that I have either? These bumps are so scary looking. They look like the eyes of a spider... just a bunch of little raised bumps... they almost look like enlarged taste buds, but since it is on the lingual frenulum they can't be taste buds. Plus i've never had taste buds there.
Thank you. Here is an update. I was looking at my tongue in the sunlight just now... there are flat topped raised bumps on the very far back. They vary in sizes of about a little smaller than a pencil eraser and below. Does this sound like any STD?
What I'm looking at may be lingual tonsils... I'm not sure, I have never noticed these bumps before but they are very far back and on the tongue. I have to stick my tongue out all the way and hum to see them. Could it just be lingual tonsils?? They are painless.
Well if you said someone performed oral sex or vaginal/anal sex on you and you had discharge, or a sore on your penis. Classic symptoms. Getting anything from oral sex is low risk and getting anything from a women when performing oral sex on her is very low.
Most of the time oral STD's don't have symptoms unless you get the classic cold sore.
no reason to think that your symptoms are std related. sounds like perhaps you are just spending a lot of time looking at your mouth since you performed oral?
the bumps under the tongue sound like mucocele's. they are fairly common and many things can cause them - including performing oral sex. typically they go away on their own. If they don't, see your dentist to see if further treatment is warranted.
your tongue issues sound like they are completely normal. Your tongue might even be a little dry from having your sore throat ( think of how we typically breathe with our mouths hanging wide open when we have a cold or sore throat ) which can make very normal things look different from usual.
bottom line though is - if you are concerned, you need seen for a proper exam. We are only guessing and nothing replaces proper medical care. we are very limited as to how we can help on an online forum.
