See below: The risks of cunneilingus include : herpes (genital and oral), human papillomavirus (HPV), syphilis, gonorrhea. It would be prudent to see your doctor for an initial assessment and follow the doctor's advice for subsequent care. You are not likely to get genital lesions, unless you manage to inoculate yourself. Wish you good health!
