Start with GP: Most general practitioners can handle std infections and make sure that what you are referring to truly is an std. Best wishes.
Dr. James Manning

Your dentist: Dentists have specific training in oral pathology. Either they or an oral surgeon can determine what you have. If treatment is needed, you'd most likely referred to an infectious disease specialist.
