Are canker sore a sign of hiv?

i had unprotected oral sex and i got many canker sore in my throath for the firsttime

my hiv test was -ve

but was it due to stress or sum other kinda std?

No, you can get canker sores from biting your tongue etc... I get them all the time and I'm not having sex.

AIDS weakens the immune system so frequent infections of any sort can be a sign of AIDS. But they usually aren't! The canker sore could be the first one out of many that indicate you have AIDS, but more likely it's absolutely nothing. Tons of people get canker sores.

There's a possibility it's due to some other std, considering its unusual location (the throat). But HIV is probably the least likely cause of a single canker sore.

It's probably actually a version of Herpes.. many people have this oral version of herpes, talk to the doctor. It's not a common sign of HIV but if you were having oral sex, you could have that, too!

What are canker sores?

Canker sores are small ulcer craters in the lining of the mouth that are frequently painful and sensitive. About 20% of the population (1 out of 5) people have canker sores at any one time. Canker sores are also medically known as aphthous ulcers.

Women are more likely than men are to have recurrent canker sores. Genetic studies show that susceptibility to recurrent outbreaks of the sores is inherited in some patients. This partially explains why family members often share the condition.

What are symptoms of canker sores?

Canker sores are usually found on the movable parts of the mouth such as the tongue or the inside lining of the lips and cheeks. The ulcers begin as small oval or round reddish swellings that usually burst within a day. The ruptured sores are covered by a thin white or yellow membrane and edged by a red halo. Generally, the sores heal within 2 weeks without scarring. Canker sores range in size from an eighth of an inch wide in mild cases to more than an inch wide in severe cases. Severe canker sores may leave scars. Fever is rare, and the sores are rarely associated with other diseases. Usually, a person has only one or a few canker sores at a time.

Most people experience their first bout with canker sores between the ages of 10 and 20. Children as young as 2, however, can develop the condition. The frequency of canker sore recurrences varies considerably. Some people have only one or two episodes a year, while others may have a continuous series of canker sores
