    "Both primary and secondary syphilis symptoms can present on the face," explains Dr. Samuel Malloy, general practitioner at Dr. Felix. "The sores of primary syphilis are most likely to appear on the face if you have had oral sex with a syphilis-infected person. This is because the sores usually occur at the site of the infection. But secondary syphilis symptoms can appear on the face from other forms of sexual contact and congenital syphilis as the syphilis has entered the body, and the rash is the body's response to the infection."

    "The location of the herpes sores are usually related to the site of the infection," explains Malloy. "However, once infected with the herpes virus, you will usually experience several outbreaks. These outbreaks may cause sores in different areas and you can spread the infection to different areas of your body through touching the sores and then other areas." If you're experiencing an outbreak, it's best to wash your hands after coming in contact with the sores to keep it from spreading to other regions of your body.

    Not-so-fun fact: Chlamydia can actually end up causing pink eye. "Chlamydia can affect the eyes, which usually happens if any sexual fluids enter the eye, either through ejaculation, or if you have some fluids on your hand and then you touch the eye," notes Malloy. "This can cause conjunctivitis, also known as pink eye. If you have contracted chlamydia through oral sex, you may experience chlamydia symptoms in and around the mouth."
