What could this be?

So I gave my boyfriend oral approximately a month ago. And today I have spotted a small red mark in the Corner of my mouth. It's not very big or visible it just looks like a sore that you get when you've been licking your mouth too much. I was wondering if the oral could have caused this? I'm very concerned.

Hi Anon,

Thank you for sharing your question with the EmpowHER community.

It's tough to say for sure, but I would advise against oral, until it clears up. It sounds like it's minor, but if it changes for the worse, do go get it checked out.

Here is an additional resource: Infection Risk Associated with Oral Sex

I hope this helps.

Be well,
