Sexually Transmitted Diseases: Questionable
A bump you say? Hmmm could be localized tissue flare, but if it becomes itchy, scabby, dry, or flaky, then it could be a sign of something more. The STI Herpes Simplex Type 1, or Oral Herpes HSV-1, is a viral STI (which means no cure, but treatable!) that...
