Hole in back of gum and sore throat?

Sore throat. A hole in the gum is suggestive of a primary problem with the teeth. I could represent a cavity of the tooth with erosion of bone and early abscess formation. It could be from a tooth socket that is communicating with the sinuses. Either way, you really need to see a dentist and possibly and ENT if there is involvement of the upper or lower jaw bone and possibly sinuses if in the upper jaw.

Is there an STD that causes a sore throat and gum pain?

Yep. Syphillis is one std that causes sores. They are called chancres. They can be located anywhere in the mouth. Go see a doctor and a round of antibiotics could clear up the whole problem. Just don't have any physical contact with anyone until you are cleared. Not a nice "gift" to give to others. Read more...

I recently performed oral and two days later and I have gum boils and a sore throat. I'm hoping it's just a cold?

Get checked. In the absence of any other cold symptoms such as cough, congestion, runny nose, sneezing, headache, fever, etc., i would be very concerned about std, which you absolutely can get in your mouth after oral sex. You should get tested, and use a dental dam or other barrier in the future. Read more...
