I am a male age 44. I had an oral encounter with a male a couple weeks ago, and for the last couple of days, I have had a scratchiness at the back of my throat and a tickle at the back of my throat making me cough regularly. I noticed some red spots (small) on the roof of my mouth toward the back and a single tiny white spot there also. My tongue also seems to have a yellowish (yellowish/orange?) coloring to it. Could have been irritation from something I ate that was hard?
I have acid reflux (take Nexium) and the heartburn has been an issue recently (feel burning in back of my throat). I am also taking Cipro and an alpha-blocker for a prostatitis issue (taking these for about 3 days so far). I add these in case it is relevant.
I have had several ill relatives, which has made me begin to panic about every little thing that happens. I am hoping to get the facts here to set me straight. I appreciate anything you all can do to help.
Outside of the scratchy throat, red dots on roof of mouth, and yellow tongue, I have had no other real symptoms (other than anxiety!). Could this be an STD or is it likely from the reflux or simply a sore throat/strep?
Thank you so much!
