Doubt herpes: Herpes doesn't behave like this - it doesn't cause a "red bump" that would "leak pus". This sounds like a pimple or infected skin cyst. See a doctor to be safe, but I don't think you need to be worried about herpes or any other STD. Good luck.

Communication, treat: Oral herpes is pretty common and almost all adults have been exposed to it in some form. Sometimes it is not symptomatic at all. Other times cold sores or more aggressive sores inside the mouth can occur. If you are having symptoms, please see the dentist for treatment. You don't want your date to see sores all over your mouth. Talk to your partner about the fact you have it, and that it is common.

Any contact: The herpes virus passes to breaks in skin or mucus membranes from contact. The contact is usually an active lesion or sore on another person, but can be from an object. The virus can also be spread from one area of your body to another, so we all should learn hand washing and antiseptic techniques.
