Bumps on tongue, sore throat and tingling lips after kiss. What is wrong?

June 22nd: Made out with girl. No sign of cold sore . June 23rd: A few hours after making out bumps on back of tongue , sore throat, and tingling lips . June 24: Achy, no appetite, sore throat, dizzy. Two red spots on neck. June 25: Went to doctor. Told him symptoms. Said red spots were nothing and swollen bumps on tongue were inflammed papillae. He gave me a throat culture and came back negative. Said there was nothing to worry about. June 26: Woke up achy and felt worm but my temperature was only 97.8. I felt better after I took a shower. Sore throat but went away later, papillae still inflammed. Part of lip started tingling and turning red but felt better and color faded when I applied chapstick. Later on there was a black spot on my tongue and I squeezed it, blood came out and the spot was barely visible after.

hello and welcome to health care magic,

Although it seems to be a benign infection which has subsided it would be prudent for you to consult an ENT who can examine the lesion and suggest a biopsy perhaps so that a proper diagnosis and treatment can be done.

I have done more than a thousand biopsy and rarely it is serious but it pays to be safe than sorry

Meanwhile do not squeeze or meddle with the same and avoid spicy and oily foodstuff.
