I could not figure out how to make a url to go directly to my picture so i uploaded my throat pictures onto my profile. Just click my username and the two photos should be available.
PLEASE TAKE A LOOK
if you had read our read before posting post on the forum, you would've seen that we don't look at pictures, regardless of the body part.
A sore throat and phlegm are not std symptoms - that's a common upper respiratory infection. nothing you've mentioned sounds like oral herpes and the provider who told you otherwise probably doesn't see many primary oral herpes infections :( did she even bother to do a culture to look for strep and/or herpes?
when you had your std testing done previously, do you know if herpes was even a part of the testing?
I see, thank you for replying to my post. The sore throat and phlegm im assuming are because i am sick at the moment. What i am worried about are the bumps that have been on the back of my throat for some time now. What you have told me seems very reassuring. She did not bother to take a culture for strep or herpes. She just prescribed the zithromax antibiotics and famvir and told me if the famvir doesn't help then she will recommend a throat specialist for them to take a look at. When I had done the Std testing I was tested for hiv, herpes 1&2, gonorrhea, chlamydia, and syphillis. The only ones i am sure i was not tested for was hpv (which i know there is no test for men) and all the hepatitis (She told me there was no use unless i did a blood transfusion). After I took the test i was satisfied to know i was negative with all those. The only one I worry about now are the hepatitis. But mainly hpv. I have white flat spots on the penis towards my stomach, where the band of a condom stops and I have been meaning to see a dermatologist about it but haven't found the time. Could hpv cause bumps in the throat to occur? my bumps are red/pinkish and round and scattered throughout my throat.
Thank you very much.
no reason to think your throat symptoms are hpv either.
very unlikely a std is the cause of your throat symptoms. I'd see an ENT specialist if it's not better in a week on the antibiotics. Honestly I wouldn't even bother continuing with the famvir. herpes symptoms wouldn't last "for awhile now".
I have had it the bumps in my throat for about a year now. That's why I am worried it might be hpv. If you don't think it is hpv what could it be? Does this sound familiar to you at all? I will schedule an appointment for an ENT specialist . Thank you
