answered on std expert forum.
I have one final question. About 2 days after this incident, I developed a sore throat, nasal congestion with bright yellow mucus, headache, and a low grade (100 degree F) fever. The sore throat disappeared within 24 hours, but I still have the mild fever and congestion. Are these signs of a developing herpes infection at all, or is it more likely I just caught an upper respiratory infection?
those are cold and flu symptoms, not std symptoms.
Thanks grace. My nose is still really stuffy and I noticed last night that I had this whitish yellow bubble on the back of my throat. I scraped it off, but it came back and I scraped it off again and it had a sticky consistency... Almost like pus. Can HSV vesicles be scraped off like this?
