Q: could receiving oral sex from someone with strep throat cause vaginal sores

my partner had strep throat and performed oral sex on me and two nights later i noticed tenderness and small red bumps on my vagina, could his strep throat be the cause for this or is it most likely going to be herpes?

well.

I highly doubt you have contracted herpes from receiveing oral sex with someone who had strep, strep is a bacterial infection, herpes is a virus. Two totally different things. You probally contracted a bacterial infection from your partners strep throat. That is, unless they told you they had strep, to cover for there herpes.

I doubt he had strep. It is possible he had herpes in his mouth. It can happen and if he had a sore or some sort of cut open in his mouth you could have caught it. Strep does cause red itchy bumps down there. Either way you should get it checked out. It is rare for someone to catch the strep virus down there but not impossible and would need medicine. etc etc
