About 5 days after being raped , my gums started to swell, do I have herpes?

About 5 days after being raped , my gums started to swell , I figured it was just my cut from my tongue ring, but then by Friday my tonsils were swollen. After the my lips looked like they were peeling but now look like they have canker sores on them. I have a bunch of canker sores inside my mouth that seemed to be spreading. Is this oral herpes?

Hi and welcome to question doctors.com
Unfortunately it seems yes it could be herpes as the symptoms and history strongly indicative for it..
Get a physician consultation to be assessed and treated properly.

hi,
it does seem to be herpes,but its too early to confirm it. apply local creams,take antibiotics and multivitamins. if it doesnt resolve,get the necessary blood investigations done.
thanks

hello there
body heat and fungal infection also present in a similar fashion. apply local anti septic ointments and wait for 8 days. avoid drinking hot liquids.
