Over a month ago I had a rather low-risk encounter but have nonetheless been anxiety-riddled about having acquired an STD (and now just HSV) infection ever since. Bear with the detail below, but wanted to but a timeline together. Here it is:
1. Two days after exposure: mini-panic attack, night sweats, muscle aches, burning mouth. Even had burning and discomfort in genital area, even though my brief exposure was strictly oral. Burning mouth/lips lasted almost entire two weeks.
2. Two weeks after exposure: sore throat with white spots on tonsils. No fever, to my knowledge. Told doctor my STD concerns, but he still just diagnosed as strep. (No swab.) Gave me injection of antibiotics and also a one-dose prescription of azythromicyn (4 pills) to alleviate my throat gonorreah fears.
3. Three weeks after exposure: formed single large-ish whitehead looking bump (sore to touch) near corner of mouth. Not touching lip, but just underneath. Did not look like a water blister, more like a big pus-filled zit that I would normally squeeze but went to doctor in panic thinking cold sore. Same doctor diagnosed as a sebaceous cyst and gave me cephalexin to take for 10 days. "Cyst" went down and was practically gone after 2 days of taking antibiotics. Never leaked or popped (that I noticed) and only left a tiny scab behind w/ a little bit of dry flakiness, but no ulcer that I could see. Still, was almost entirely unnoticeable within just 5 days, so I chalked it up to doctor diagnosing it correctly.
4. Weeks four/five: slightly a bit more relaxed, but still have much anxiety since I know I can't test for HSV for awhile. Yesterday I had soreness INSIDE my mouth on inside of cheek, under tongue and gums (felt like canker sores or like maybe I burned my mouth with hot coffee or something, but could not see any visible evidence, other than a bitten bottom lip). Soreness almost completely gone this morning.
Currently: Minor but lingering scratchy throat for over a week now, and persistently dry/chapped lips. I've never in my life bought ChapStick until just recently because my lips are always so dry. However, I am also constantly licking my lips subconciously trying to feel for odd bumps or sores. . .could that be causing the dryness? Does any of this sound like it adds up to an HSV infection? Thanks in advance for reading and responding.
