Possible...: Probably should have a doc look at it and take a culture of the sores. AND, if you want to avoid any worry of STD's or accidental parenting in the future, wear a condom---it's worth it!! Don't forget, some presents keep on giving.

This is not a sexually transmitted disease. No STD has this as it's symptoms. And STDs have an incubation time before any symptoms anyway. Best for this patient to get his coincidental throat infection evaluated by his physician.

Should see your MD: It may be a tonsil infection but it is probably better for you to be checked. A culture could be taken and you may need to be treated.

Not an STD: No. Strep throat or viral pharyngitis after a sexual encounter is a coincidence. It is not a sexually transmitted disease. There is no STD that presents like this.
