Thanks for the answers! final follow up!
I had a similar incident one year back. I shared drinks and smoke with a stranger and as I was worried, I wiped my face and mouth with rubbing alcohol. So until 2-3 weeks I had a dry mouth and sore throat/irritated tongue/pain in lips. As I was really distressed I did a full STD panel including IGG test for herpes (All were negative). After 6 months my physician ordered an UOW blot also, which was negative.
As I have some ocd I live very carefully. But this mask incident happened last month.
So for more than 3 weeks I have this dry mouth condition. Currently edge of my tongue tip stings and intermittently different areas(side or middle mostly) of my tongue feel painful. I am really worried and stressed. Even though I had dry mouth last time, my tongue tip was not this much painful. After meals this irritation goes away for a while.
Do you think these symptoms are related to hsv or any other STI infection?
Should I do a viral swab of my tongue for hsv?
Do you think I should do a full panel of std testing ?
Can there be enough virus on the face mask to transmit hsv or any other sti? It was on the table for 1-2 mins.
Can this be due a to allergy as I used hand sanitizer to rub my lips and face?
