User :   Hello Doctor,
I met a sexual worker 0n 02/02/10 for sensual massage, there was no penetration sex involved. I am worried about other STD's.
Two days prior to the meet i was on a hectic travel in bus for close to 10 + 10 hours journey and i had cought up cold and cough. I was slightly restless.
After the incident(meeting sexual worker),
After two days, i got fever, headache, burning sensation while urinating, a pimple on and above the lip(i think this was their earlier too, not sure, but it didnt seem like the one that would cause for STD, it was just a puss formation and dried out within two days). I had throat infection, i did gargling with betadine solution and throat infection subsided within a day. Took a paracetamol, fever too subsided.

Throat infection, cold and fever are common to me since childhood and i usually go for paracetamol and gargling, this gives me immediate relief.

Do you think i might have contracted any STD's, is there any test i have to go through. Can you refer any clinic in Bangalore for the same.
