oral symptoms and risk?

Hi,
I am a married male and have recently started to "experiment" with other males. I normally only kiss and engage in mutual masterbation but a few weeks ago I performed oral sex with another male. He did not ejaculate and I did not see any pre-cum on his penis. 4 days later I developed a mild sore throat, tickly cough and felt a bit off.These symptoms are still with me 3 weeks later. I  have read that oral (especially without ejaculation) is very low risk but it is these symptoms that are causing me to worry. What are the chances that I have caught some thing Dr.?

there are over a dozen different proteins and enzymes in the mouth that inhibit hiv transmission.

oral sex carries NO risk.
