After being paranoid about having hsv2 after a stupid, unprotected one night stand with a man of an unknown status, I tested negative at 4 months and was treated with antibiotics for a bacterial infection.
A few weeks after being on the antibiotics, I got a really foul taste in my mouth and noticed my tongue is coated in white that won't scrape off, with red spots (not sores). There's no pain, just like a weird feeling on my tongue.
I have read this can be a side effect of the antibiotic, but when I googled the symptom of white coated tongue and bad breath, I saw all these hsv1 pages pop up, and of course, got paranoid once again, because I kissed someone a few days prior. I honestly feel like my body is just telling me I'm meant to be single forever because any time I do anything with anyone, I seem to get some type of symptom lol.
Does this sound like a primary hsv1 outbreak? I read that reoccurances on the tongue are rare, but primary infections can be this way.
