Leave it to German to be gross

The German language is very descriptive and the culture is also one that is rather direct. As a result, this can lead to what can be a bit uncomfortable for those from a less direct culture.

Case in point? Take a gander at this medication.

English uses the euphemism "cold sores." German cuts straight to the chase. This is a medication for "lip herpes" (Lippenherpes).
