Oral STD


Does this look like it could be herpes? I tested negative on blood tests for all stds including hsv1 and hsv2 but my mouth hurts, lips occasionally tingle but no lesions inside or on my lips

I thought this was a pimple but the yellow crust has me unsure

Which kind of sexual exposure did you have ? If you had oral sex, you were exposed to herpes, syphilis and gonorrhea. If you tested for herpes more than three months after the exposure and your result was negative, that result was accurate. If you did it before expiring three months, you should repeat it.

You should also test for syphilis 6 weeks after the exposure and 3 weeks after the exposure for gonorrhea.

All the best.

Thank you for your response. I tested at 3 weeks after exposure. It was oral exposure.

The test was neg for everything including hep, hiv, hsv1 and 2 with an  IgG test, chlamydia, gonnorrhea and syphilis.

It wont be 3 months until the end of this month so I'll just have to be paranoid and anxious until I can retest at the beginning of September.
