IDK about you, but it seems like a new sexually transmitted disease pops up every other day—so when a new one reportedly started making the rounds in , it didn't seem that far-fetched. The one in question back then? Blue waffle disease— basically an STD that made parts of a woman's vulva turn blue yes, really. It all started as a bait-and-switch meme, according to CNN. In this case, people were shown a picture of an actual blue waffle the breakfast food with the text, "bet you can't find me on google image search," per the website Know Your Meme.
That was when a disturbing image of blue-tinted, pus-covered, lesion-filled labia, said to be the result of a sexually transmitted disease STD , started circulating online. But the picture remains a pervasive — and fake — meme to this day. Almost as unsettling as the photo were the claims that went along with it. Blue waffle disease was said to be an STD that affects only the vagina.
Read this before you do a Google image search. The image shows a scabbed, seemingly infected, blue-tinted labia. If you don't believe us, search Google Images for it yourself—though we strongly advise against it.
Blue waffle disease is a fictional sexually transmitted disease that is said only to affect females. However, this sexually transmitted disease STD is nothing more than a rumor started on the internet. There is no medical evidence that it exists.
