Brief Answer:
Not related to STD.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
The fever and sore throat can happen due to oral sex but that subsided well with antibiotics.
The pimple that has appeared below the lower lip is not related to the oral sex. I have seen the attached image. This can be due to a blocked skin gland that will gradually subside on its own. No need to worry.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.

Brief Answer:
Not related to STD or oral sex.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear.
Thanks for writing again.

The headache that she had is not related to oral sex or STD. This can be due to stress, anxiety, weak eye sight and several other reasons. Increasing the fluid intake and few relaxation exercises like Yoga can help.

The throat pain and vomiting can be related to gastritis or a recurrence of a throat infection. Infection of tonsils also needs to be ruled out after a throat examination.

Do consult a physician and get her examined for this.

Hope my answer is helpful.
Do accept my answer in case there are no further queries.

last month when I posted my question, that time her parents took her to a doctor. The doctor is a B.A.M.S, PG Dy. Don't know whether he is qualified doctor or not. He gave the following medications
1. cefixime 200mg
2. Zincold
3. Nexpro RD 40
4. Nimulid MD (Nimesulide flavoured disperable tablets)
5. Pantop as Injection
I attached the prescription also Madam.
The doctor also said her eyes were very dry and gave her drops.
Today she is having the same symptoms as last time i.e., cough, throat pain, headache and fever. kindly help Madam

Brief Answer:
Can be a throat infection.

Detailed Answer:
She needs to consult an MBBS doctor at least for a throat examination. Gastritis can also cause such symptoms. The medicines prescribed are correct and should provide her relief. Avoid hot and spicy food for prolonged relief.
