There's a word for it in German


Zehennagelschnurrbartangst (n.) - The experience of, having hours earlier extracted an infected ingrown toenail from a patient, smelling the pus again, and worrying that perhaps some of it has squirted up onto your moustache without your knowledge.

I spend a lot of time with pus. Finger pus, butt pus, pus pus, arm pas, face pus. I now keep tiger balm/dencorub in my bag to line my mask with.
100% guaranteed to leave you with minty fresh smell. with maybe 5% pus.

"5% pus" is a great slogan.
"I can't believe it's not butter!"
