a canker sore

I have developed a canker sore ( I am not sure it is its more of a white pimple on the side of my tongue ) yesterday and it went a way today afternoon. I searched the internet and found out that canker sore is a symptom of hiv but i tested -ve for hiv well beyond the window period so could it be a symptoom of another STD?

Where did you read that canker sores are symptoms of HIV?  They aren't.

For more info, please see the HIV prevention forum.

Oops sorry - forgot the other part of it.

No, canker sores aren't associated with anything to do with sex at all, including STDs.

Nope, it still sounds like a canker sore, or apthous ulcer (the same thing.)  

If you are concerned, see your doctor or dentist.
