Not necessarily: First you must define "right away".

There are other possibilities but not enuf space here to explore all STDs. Be careful. It is dangerous out there. ...Read more

I have pink dots in the of my tongue do I have a STD it hurt when i eat and  drink something to

See dentist: Oral lesions range in their cause and treatment. Your best bet would be to see a dentist for a proper evaluation while the lesions are present.
