Possible Exposure To HPV Virus After Oral Sex?
I have complaints of thrush under the back of the tongue. And the big tonsil next door. It always feels painful even senut2 and lymph nodes in the neck also swell. I have a history of having had oral sex with people who have genital warts without safety. At that time I did not know. Is there a possibility of being exposed to an HPV virus that can cause cancer? Then what should I do?
Hello Fio, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
I will try to help answer.
Akuminata condyloma or genital warts is an infection that occurs in the genital area caused by a virus, the human papillomavirus (HPV) virus. Symptoms caused by itching, lumps appear in the genital area such as cauliflower. Transmission of the human papillomavirus virus (HPV) is generally by direct physical contact by alternating sexual partners, engaging in unprotected sexual intercourse, performing oral sex.
As for the complaints that you feel at this time such as thrush under the tongue and inflamed tonsils and swelling in the lymph of the neck caused by infection, it is not certain the infection originated from an HPV virus infection due to a history of previous contact, or due to bacterial infection. This needs to be done further tests such as blood tests and sampling.
Currently corona virus outbreak is happening, for the time being you are advised to stay at home and maintain oral hygiene, by multiplying water consumption, avoiding hot and spicy foods, avoiding drinking cold, alcoholic and avoiding smoking, avoiding oral activities sex.
But stay alert if complaints arise such as high fever, cough, shortness of breath immediately take it to the nearest hospital to get further treatment.
Hopefully can help. thanks.
