Usual blood clot like small red bumps in mouth due to teeth bit or mostly during chewing, goes away automatically after some time. I am a smoker.

Usual blood clot like small red bumps in mouth due to teeth bit or mostly during chewing, goes away automatically after some time. I am a smoker.

Red bumps: First, you should stop smoking as it's a known carcinogen and will also lead to other health problems. While it seems that you have diagnosed the red bumps as related to accidental trauma, without actually examining you, we can't confirm or negate your diagnosis. It's best to have this checked by a local dentist (or physician). ...Read more

I'm worried I have hiv. Right now I have 2 small mouth ulcers and small red bumps on my back and chest that don't itch. Also I have a headache. Its been 2 weeks since I had unprotected oral sex. I am a paranoid person so how worried should I be?

I'm worried I have hiv. Right now I have 2 small mouth ulcers and small red bumps on my back and chest that don't itch. Also I have a headache. Its been 2 weeks since I had unprotected oral sex. I am a paranoid person so how worried should I be?

Not at all: You should not worry before you have a test to determine if you have HIV or another sexually transmitted disease. Simply make an appointment with your doctor, discuss your sexual activity and ask for testing for STDs as well as for advice regarding safe sex. Do not be shy about doing this, we are all prepared to have these discussions and to address these concerns. You are part of a generation that seems to have a higher rate of anxiety about many things, health especially. It is not clear why this generation has such a high rate of anxiety or, as you call it, paranoia, but rest assured you are not alone. ...Read more
