COUNCIL CHRONICLE – A man from Mexico was told to play it cool for a while after his dentist found a mysterious red spot on his palate. With a little bit of research, his dentist concluded that red spot was the unfortunate denouement of performing too much oral sex.
Red Spot Associated with Oral Sex Discovered During Routine Visit
When we think about sex-related injuries, usually the image of something actually getting broken during sex pops to mind. As it turns out, the case of an unnamed man from Mexico would make medical history.
Dr. Luiz Albert Mendez, one of the doctors involved in the Mexico man ‘love mark’ case and the one who wrote about him in the BMJ Case Reports, declared that this has to be one of the most unusual sex-related injuries.
According to Dr. Mendez, the individual went to a dental clinic after one of his fillings came loose. Upon examining his oral cavity, the man’s dentist found a red spot on the man’s soft palate.
Of course, the dentist was puzzled by the red spot because it did not resemble any known type of injury. The team who assessed the patient’s erythema (that’s the medical term for the man’s red spot) concluded that the red spot was due to oral sex.
Yes, the red spot on the man’s soft palate was the unfortunate result of him having too much fun. Dr. Mendez explained that such a hematoma could appear if penis’ glands touch the soft palate. He also said that this type of injury is consistent with blunt trauma.
The patient admitted having sex three days before his appointment and that he often performs fellatio after consuming marijuana and meth. Case closed!
The man was sent home with the promise that the red spot would vanish on its own after a couple of days.
