User :   I was with a woman about two days ago, I performed about two minutes....maybe less of oral with her. Within one or two hours my left lower lip began to swell up with no pain but slight discomfort. I made a trip to my local ER afraid I had contracted something. The ER doctor was almost positive I did not have an STD he gave me motrin and advised taking benadryll...the swelling went down within a few hours. Now my lip is red in that particular pain or real discomfort...but I had picked at it alittle and it bagain to bleed...and it still looks alittle strange, an I cant tell but I think I see a small white dot forming. I am still afraid of what this could be... mind you there is no pain and mild to no ER doctor told me Oral herpes is relatively hard to must come in contact with open infected sores. I dont know what to think I just want some peice of mind. I saw no abnormalities anywhere on my partners body. should I relax or stress out about it?
