Is there an STD you can get on the tongue that is a red circle, is it gonorrhea?

Is there an STD you can get on the tongue that is a red circle, is it gonorrhea?

Yes, possible but: More likely a 'red circle' on the tongue us a variant of normal anatomy or benign inflammatory condition called glossitis.

Until then, treat it as an std and be responsible to your sexual partners. ...Read more

Noticed red spots in clusters in throat and back of tongue and doesnt hurt,2 days after gettig unprotected blowjob. Neg for gonorrehea, chlymadia.std?

Noticed red spots in clusters in throat and back of tongue and doesnt hurt,2 days after gettig unprotected blowjob. Neg for gonorrehea, chlymadia.std?

Probably no STD: The "red spots" might be normal, especially painless. Google "circumvallate papillae" and see if that matches the tongue bumps. You can't catch an STD of the mouth or throat by exposure of your penis; STDs don't travel through the body like that. Receiving oral sex is safe sex: not totally risk free, but low risk for all STDs. Probably nothing is wrong, but see a doctor if you remain concerned. ...Read more

If I had an STD on my tongue would I know right away?

If I had an STD on my tongue would I know right away?

Not necessarily: First you must define "right away". As an example if you got a primary syphilitic chancre (which is painless) in an area of the tongue not easily accessible to observation you might miss it. There are other possibilities but not enuf space here to explore all STDs. Be careful. It is dangerous out there. ...Read more

My boyfriend has these black dots on his tongue and im not sure if its an std. What should I do?

See MD or DDS: There are many things this could be, often nothing to worry about. Too many to list here. We would need a dialog as well(i.e. Does your boyfriend smoke?) the best thing to do is to let a dental professional like a an oral surgeon or general dentist look at area( or an ent) to make sure there isn't a problem. ...Read more

Which STD cause 2 thick lines in the middle of the  tongue.

Unclear question: I'm having trouble visualizing "thick lines" on the tongue. No STD is a likely cause, except that syphilis can cause abnormalities of various kinds in the mouth. See a health professional and take it from there. ...Read more
