Welcome to XXXXXXX

Thanks for posting your query.

As you had sore throat just a day before you had your oral sex and then it became mild after 2 days indicates that it is unlikely due to STD.

Through oral sex one could have a throat infection by both STD ( Gonorrhea and Chlamydia)and non STD organisms (Streptococcus). So better consult your physician or an E.N.T. surgeon and reveal the exact history. He/she will do the necessary investigations and will give you the exact treatment and you can get rid of all your symptoms.
It is always safer to have protected sex even for oral sex.
Wish you a speedy recovery.
