My boyfriend gets fever blisters. He takes medicine for them so they're maybe once in a blue moon. They run in his family. They're especially bad if he's stressed or if he gets sunburned. It's not because he's a *****, its genetics.

So really, this discussion is about SES. And we all know, money is attractive.

Picture a young woman, in a Wal Mart t shirt, with cleavage, wearing Wal Mart shows, and mini skirt.

Picture same young woman, dressed in a t shirt from Nordstroms, with a Chanel bra, Mannolo Blahnik shoes, and short skirt from Micheal Kors.

Which one is hot? Which one is trashy?
Not true. Not all insurances cover illness issues that are non-life threatening.

Yeaaaaaah healthcare!

It could be genetics that allow it to show, but it could just be everyone in his family has the virus from normal family contact. Its why you keep adults away from kissing your newborn. A baby with a weaker immune system can have extreme complications if infected. There also is a huge difference between a viral cold sore and a canker sore. Canker sores are most often genetic like other non-pathogen sourced skin conditions.

First of all, OP, this is a strawman's argument.

You can't just say something is not trashy because something else is trashier in your eyes.

With that being said, I don't care about cleavage or cold sores. Boobs are a body part, cold sores are something many, many people of all ages get beyond their control. So no, neither of these things signify trashy to me.
