Customer Question
I have red bumps...

I have red bumps on the back of my tongue and somewhat throat What can this mean?

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Does anything in particular seem to make the bumps better or worse?

No i noticed it about a month ago and then just ignored it but tonight I looked it at it and they were there

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Umm I had sexual contact with someone. Can this be a sign of HIV?

Hello
Dermatologist: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 1 month ago

red bumps on the back of the tongue are most likely irritated taste buds.

sore throat can be from acid reflux or from post nasal drip

when was the sex?

are you male or female? your partner?

your symptoms don't point to HIV.

Customer reply replied 1 month ago
I don't have a sore throat. Just bumps on the back of my tongue area.
I am female and the sexual contact was close to two to three months ago. It was a male.
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
I also noticed a small red spot on my stomach
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
I've been googling a lot in which had made me worry I have HIV
Dermatologist: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 1 month ago

I see

google really doesn't help these situations.

bumps on the back of the tongue are normal.

did you have anal sex?

one sexual contact by vaginal sex would be low risk for HIV, even if he had HIV.

your symptoms don't point to HIV.

Ask Your Own Dermatology Question
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
I agree, google really doesn't.
I'm not sure if you saw that I also noticed two small red spots on my stomach area.
I've also had pain.
No anal sex. Just private areas making contact. Do you still believe it doesn't sound like HIV
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
I can just message them to you
Dermatologist: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 1 month ago

yes, this doesn't sound like HIV

small red dots are very common and normal

where is the pain?

vaginal pain?

Ask Your Own Dermatology Question
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
pelvic pain and I've had a uti and yeast infection in the past month. But I also have been on 4 different antibiotics if that makes a difference
Customer reply replied 1 month ago
what about the rash on my stomach? It's two small red spots
Dermatologist: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 1 month ago

antibiotics can cause yeast infections and UTIs

those red dots sound like small normal cherry angiomas.

Okay...the bumps on my tongue do not look to be small they are bigger than usual
Dermatologist: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 1 month ago

acid reflux, post nasal drip can irritate them and cause them to be a bit bigger

HIV would not do this.

Customer reply replied 1 month ago
Okay. Also, the spots on my stomach you said could be cherry agniomas? They look like small rashes that are flat
Dermatologist: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 1 month ago

they could be from petechiae from small broken blood vessles

they don't sound related to HIV

Dermatologist: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 1 month ago
