Brief Answer: Herpes type1 is mostly a childhood disease Detailed Answer: Hello Though you have asked many questions in a single , I shall try to answer each STD are infections transmitted from one partner to other during sexual encounter. Herpes can present as Oral Herpes (caused by type 1 herpes virus) ,usually acquired in childhood ,may remain dormant life long, present as cold sores or blisters or as Genital Herpes which may be asymptomatic but transmitted on sexual contact. Herpes may manifest any time when immunity goes down or at some other times in life. Acne is not STD HIV,Syphilis ,Chlamydia, Herpes are to be tested. HIV and Syphilis are tested by card test, chlamydia by smears and culture tests Worms, fleas, ticks, salmonella, campylobacteriosis, scabies be transmitted by having sex with cow. As such STD is species specific so it is by human-human contact. I hope I have provided some useful information. DR SAATIISH JHUNTRRAA
