April 2nd unprotected one time vaginal encounter with CSW. April 9th developed fever of approximately 38.5 degrees. Next day presented with sore throat that was isolated only to the right side, very painful, also what I perceived was a swollen gland, again right side neck area only. Fever went away at about 72-96 hours, sore throat about 96.
Was able to work and just felt like I had flu. I did develop about 2 1/2 days into the illnes many ulcers on my tongue and mouth, quite painful, which does scare me since many websites list them as primary ARS symptoms, even go so far as to advise physicians their presence can point away from other viral infections and more towards HIV. There was never any rash.
I do not live in the USA, I work abroad but live in country with a prevalence rate of .2 percent. of 18,000,000.
