My boyfriend was sick, I kissed him & he's better but didn't have a sore throat and my throat in the front has been sore for longer than 2 weeks?

My boyfriend was sick, I kissed him & he's better but didn't have a sore throat and my throat in the front has been sore for longer than 2 weeks?

See your doctor: Since it has been going on for more than 2 weeks, yes, get to your doctor for further workup. Most viral sources of pharyngitis (sore throat) will resolve within 2 weeks. I have seen them go longer, but again, most will resolve by then. Your doctor will at a minimum offer some ideas on how to treat the sore throat regardless of cause. ...Read more

I have it sex with fingers. ... And he kiss me in my vagina. We kiss each other I have sore throat now I'm very worried if I get HIV.

Can I get HIV by kissing a stranger (a gay man) for about 5 min while I had a sore throat and a sore burnt tongue? I don't know if he was bleeding

Can I get HIV by kissing a stranger (a gay man) for about 5 min while I had a sore throat and a sore burnt tongue? I don't know if he was bleeding

No: HIV isn't transmitted by kissing. Period. You can get gonorrhea or syphilis or infectious mono or CMV. But not HIV. Very few people are bleeding, especially while you're kissing them. I'm very glad you found a time to be happy with another person, and that you're comfortable with who you are -- and I admire your courage in asking. Love well and safely. Best wishes. ...Read more

Not mono from you: You are over mono--it does not suddenly pop up as a sore throat after all symptoms have gone; who infected whom is a 50:50 proposition, or you both picked it up elsewhere--you should have your throat swabbed to see if it is caused by Strep ...Read more

Was kissing this guy last night alot, I woke up wit kind of sore throat. There are red spots on roof of mouth. Almost looks like viral infection? Am I ok

Sores from kissing: Hello! Mono has an incubation period of 4-6 weeks so you kiss and get sick 1 and a half months later. This is unlikely to be MONO unless you kissed someone 6 weeks ago. You'd be sicker too. These are probably common herpes oral lesions. Don't kiss or have oral sex and they are VERY infectious for the next 10 days. Thanks ...Read more

How can I help my sore throat?

Herbal medicines: Presuming this is an acute sore throat, these are usually viral & thus antibiotics won't help (if you have a fever and fairly swollen glands it could be strep or another bacterial infection, which can be helped by antibiotics). My favorite treatments for sore throats are herbs, especially pelargonium sidoides & andrographis. Propolis, made by bees, also helps. See my comment for links & more. ...Read more
