I have a dry mouth issue which occur intermittently(rarely occurs ) where my tongue get very rough and burning (mostly if I consume alcohol or if I am under a lot of stress).
After 4 days of face mask incident I drank some wine and cold beer.
After 7 days of the mask incident my face get irritated and mouth got very dried. BUT Lips started to burn and peel a little bit and tongue was rough and feel irritated (Not sure becz I use hand sanitizer to wipe my lips and face using a paper towel). This was continuous for 2 weeks.
I was scared I got some sti by wearing my colleagues face mask. I went to a doctor and he check my mouth and he told me it seems normal and ask me to apply some Vaseline as this may caused by the cold weather.
But Still I have the dry mouth issue, but burning of lips reduced a little after applying Vaseline. Now more than a weeks, I am still having little dryness on lips. And for few days tip of my tongue stings, instead of dryness on whole tongue. I cant see any blisters. After having meals this irritation goes away for a while.
I am not sexually active and never had sti issues or cold sores.
As you said, is this mask incident, zero risk for transmitting any STI?
What if there were some saliva droplets and virus on the face mask? Can hsv or any other sti transmit via a mask?
Do you think these oral symptoms are due to hsv or any other STI?
Do you think this burning on tongue and lips due to a allergic reaction as I used hand sanitizer to wipe my lips and face after the incident?
Do you still think I should not get tested?
Should I swab my tongue for hsv?
I am really worried as for few days now under the my tongue tip is stings and irritated? Can this be due to any STI?
