Warts under tongue appeared HOURS after giving oral to a woman. Please Diagnose.

I performed oral on a woman. Within hours I began developing somewhat painful warts underneath my tongue. Grew larger in a couple more hours. I gargled with apple cider vinegar with salt for a couple days, and that appears to have shrunk the warts a bit. What could this be? Please advise which type of doctor diagnoses this. I've been given about 6 different answers from other doctors: Dentist, Oral Surgeon, Dermatologist, ENT, ENT subset laryngologist, infectious disease specialist

These appear to be vessicles. If you have no other symptoms (fever, chills, nausea, etc) or other lesions (on your hands, feet or face) it can still be viral, stomatitis or even a local reaction to a product. If you haven't been in to actually see a doctor, I urge you to see a ENT for a viral culture and specific evaluation of the lesions.
Unfortunately, it sounds like you have contracted a STD, orally. It is difficult to distinguish whether the lesions under the tongue are fluid filled or fleshy. But nonetheless, a culture of any discharge and biopsy of the lesions needs to be performed to obtain an exact diagnosis. So, you should go see your GP | PCP. In the meantime, avoid oral contact with any one and keep your hands out of your mouth. And for your future health, use oral protection (such as a dental dam) when having oral sex.

If you have HPV, human papilloma virus, which is transmitted by sexual contact, and can cause either oral or genital warts, then you need to see an infectious disease specialist or go to an STD clinic. There is a treatment for HPV, but from the picture it does not look like you have warts. Perhaps you should get a second opinion from a dentist to make sure you don't have something else.
