If my tongue breaks out kinda white color of the tip can peel skin off every morning or every other morning do I have std?

Not STD: No STD is a likely cause of symptoms like this. See your doctor for professional advice and diagnosis, but don't worry about STD. If you may be at risk for STD (new partner, partner with other partners, etc), you probably should have routine STD testing, while it's on your mind. But even if something turns up positive, probably it wouldn't explain your mouth problem. Good luck. ...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. Most lesions in the mouth will resolve in 2 weeks so don't wait. My first guess would not be an std but this is not possible to say without seeing the tongue and getting a proper history. Best of luck. ...Read more

Boil under tongue in 2 hrs on frenulum after oral sex given to a woman. Discomfort but not painful. Is it std? How do I treat it?

Trauma: The "boil" is more likely a traumatic ulcer from rubbing of the frenum (fibrous attachment) of the tongue across the sharp edges of your lower front teeth. It will heal in 10-14 days. The formation of a sore from an std is highly unlikely but future sores are not if your partner is infected. Be sure. Be safe. And remember that stds are not always visible and can be contagious without sores. ...Read more
