Red veiny looking throat and white tongue after oral sex

Resolved Question:

I was just wondering what this could be. I performed and was given oral sex just 7 days ago. The day after I woke up with a sore throat, and 2 days after the tip of my penis was itchy. I asked my friend who is a nurse to check it out, and he didn't really see anything since my penis has no noticeable rash or redness, as for my throat at the time it was cleared up. Now it seems to have developed this weird red veiny look in the back, and I think my tongue might be whiter than usual. I uploaded an image. What could this be and what should I do?

Thanks for posting your query at DoctorSpring. I can understand your concern.

The picture shows that you may oral thrush, however, since the picture is a little blurred, it would be difficult to say for sure.

In case , you can send another picture which is a little more clearer , it would be very helpful. Also if you can send a picture of the lesion on your penis, it would enable me to have a look and give my opinion regarding it.

The treatment for oral thrush is oral antifungal medication like fluconazole in single dose. You will require a prescription for it.

Please let me know if you have any queries.

Take care.

Patient replied :

Hello Doctor,

Thank you for the response! I tried a second picture, but it is difficult to take pictures inside the throat. Let me know if this is better.

I have a sore throat still, and the penis itch has reduced a bit, but only when I am not wearing pants. If I wear pants it itches at the tip again.

I also sent a picture of the penis. Will I have to see a doctor for the fluconazole prescription?


Thanks for your reply.

It does seem that you have oral thrush.

You will need to take a prescription from your doctor for fluconazole.

The penis doesn't seem to have a particular rash, however you can apply clotrimazole cream over it so that any component of yeast infection that may be present, will be taken care of.

Please let me know if you have any queries.

Take care

Patient replied :

I went to the doctor and he did not want to prescribe fluconazole since he said he wasn't oral thrush, instead he gave me 250mg of azithromycin. It's a 5 day dosage. I'm not sure if this will work. I'll check for the clotrimazole cream. Thank you for the response.


Thanks for your reply.

I would suggest that you follow the doctor's advice since he could see you in person and would be able to diagnose better rather than seeing a condition in the picture.

Take care
