Hi, Which std causes swollen lips.

Hi, Which std causes swollen lips.

None: No STD is a likely cause of such a symptom. The only exception might be a new case of oral herpes, but only if the swelling is accompanied by multiple painful blisters and sores. Drug allergies can cause lip swelling, so in theory an STD treatment could cause it as a side effect. ...Read more

Which std can cause lips to be chapped and dry gray and then upper Lip get a little dark like the skin wants to peel off?

No STD: No STD is a likely cause of these symptoms. The only remote possibility might be syphilis, which can cause a wide variety of skin problems, which might on rare occasions affect the lips. But even this seems extremely unlikely. You and your doctor need to look into non-STD explanations for this. ...Read more

When I go for pap smears will an STD show up if they scrape my vaginal wall for testing? I've never been told I have an STD. Also. My vaginal lips burn like a rash would. Yeast infection?

When I go for pap smears will an STD show up if they scrape my vaginal wall for testing? I've never been told I have an STD. Also. My vaginal lips burn like a rash would. Yeast infection?

Pap misses most STDs: The pap smear is designed to detect abnormal cells that can predict future cancer, and these changes are caused by HPV, an STD. But it does not detect any other STDs; specific STD tests (e.g. gonorrhea, chlamydia, trichomonas) need to be requested by the doctor. And yes, vaginal and labial burning often is caused by yeast. (Which of course is not an STD.) Discuss with your doctor. Good luck! ...Read more

I smoke medicinal marijuana and ever since I got an STD 4 years ago my bottom lip swells.... What could be the reason?

See answer: Fordyce spots or granules are present at birth, but which don't become prominent until adulthood.

I have dry irritating red areas on the edge of my lips also my lips have been unusually chapped the last few days. Could this be a symptom of an std?

I have dry irritating red areas on the edge of my lips also my lips have been unusually chapped the last few days. Could this be a symptom of an std?

Not likely: Irritated, chapped lips are due to dryness and sun exposure usually. Sometimes a yeast infection may occur in the corners of the lips and is red & irritated. If it is all around your mouth, stop licking your lips, use lip balms like chap stick, vaseline etc as often as needed to control the irritation and dryness. Good nutrition and lots of water also help. ...Read more
