Oral what?: When I was resident at a county hospital, we treated what appeared to be an outbreak of oral gonorrhea amongst people your age with the same symptoms who had oral sex (culture confirmed). There are still some unanswered questions- mainly the thought that a healthy immune system should prevent this. But for what it's worth, I thought I would mention this experience with a clinical "zebra."
