I have symptoms of burning and redness in my mouth (back of throat, sides of tongue, and inner lip areas. Could this be HPV- since i have been confirmed with HPV in the genital external area?
We can't speculate as to what might be causing symptoms, of course, but can say that none of this is characteristic of HPV. Your primary health care provider, or even a dentist, should be able to evaluate that for you easily enough, though.
What are the treatment options for oral HPV? Does it follow the same paths and virus as genital HPV?
I'd almost urge you not to get too deeply into treatment options for oral HPV, at least at this point. In general there are surgical procedures, usually out-patient and not considered major, that can remove oral lesions.
What types of signs and symptoms should i be aware of regarding oral HPV?
Usually warts, much like you'd find elsewhere.
I have never had a "cold sore" and think the symptoms would be different that what i have at this time.
Cold sores are usually (but not always) external bumps or sores, just like what you often see on little kids. Typically on the lips or facial area.
Hope this helps. Post again anytime!
