I will make this brief for the experts on here since I know most of the questions are repetitive for you and I don't want this to be one of them. I had a high risk exposure, went on PEP, tested but have a lingering symptom that is worrying to me. I have a "sore" throat for over a month now. Itt does not hurt but is red along the back wall of my mouth and uvula. There is also small grey spot in one area and it's now starting to burn a little at random times. No pain while swallowing.
My exposure was insertive anal on a trans. Condom must have broke mid way through and I did not realize. I finished and did not notice until I pulled out. I have known this person for 10 years and it has always been protected. They state they are clean but would not prove anything to me or even test when I tried talking which is disturbing. They don't have the best past and have had MULTIPLE partners.
See my timeline below:
7/19 - Exposure
7/21 - Started PEP
8/17 - Finished PEP
8/18 - 4th gen test negative (30 days post exp and 1 day post pep)
9/5 - 4th gen test negative (48 days post exp and 19 post pep)
9/5 - Full STD panel - all negative except for Herpes 1
I am testing on 9/18 (60 days post exp & 32 post pep) and again on 10/2 (75 day post exp & 46 post pep).
The only other thing I want to mention is I did receive a "rash" on both my hands for roughly two weeks in the middle of pep or end of pep. Small red dots that looked like they were under my skin, not raised and did not hurt but where just there. My hands were also extremely dry with occasional small white dots of dry skin. As I said it lasted for roughly 2 weeks and disappeared.
Besides that, I have experienced nothing else physical. At this point a lot of mental stress.
Hoping for a little insight and guidance regarding this and not just a "nothing you can do, test again at the right time".
Thank you in advance.
