    Anyone know if this is a STD or what?

    I have been having a hell of a time looking for symptoms that describe what is in my inner cheeks of my mouth. So I posted a photo and was wondering if anyone knows what this might be. There is a horizontal white mark which sort of looks like rolled up skin.

    Anyone have a clue?

    Sounds like you may have eaten something a bit rough maybe and tore your delicate membranes inside your mouth. I can't open the pic though to confirm. This happens to me if I'm eating something hard like say a clubhouse sandwich where the toast is really hard.

    This has been there for a little over 2 years though. It developed about a day or 2 after I kissed this girl. I asked her if she had anything and told her it developed, but she said she had nothing. She has been known to lie though.

    I even paid for one of those private blood tests for Herpes, Gonorrhea, Chlamydia, Syphilis, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, HIV Antibody. It showed up negative.

    So either this is nothing to worry about, it's something else besides above, or those tests were wrong.

    I havve no idea what this is but have you been to see a Doc or a Dermo abbout this. This is soemthing that you need to have seen to be evaluated. This is not something that someone can figure out on line.

    If all your tests came back negative then it most likely not one off those STD'S.

    I know, but I figured it would be worth asking here. Someone's got to know what this is.

    When I had health insurance, I was too embarrassed so I paid out of pocket one of those private testing facilities. Hopefully they didn't just take my money and give me back false results without testing.

    Now I don't have health insurance and assumed it would be much more expensive than that testing facility so I am hesitating that.

    Actually no, someones not necessarily "got" to know what that is. It's likely nothing, especially since you've had it for two years and it's not gotten worse nor better.
