Red dots appearing on and off inside of cheeks


Q: I get these tiny red spots inside my cheeks they come and go what could they be? I have had a few other symptoms as well. Had a oral sexual encounter with someone close to me last sept then in oct unprotected sex with him as well. Noticed the red dots right around oct after the sexual encounter in sept. Now getting them again over a year later. Could this be hiv or std?
