1915587_tn?1330315533 Hi ladies, i have recently just developed a red rash on my face it starts on the upper right cheek and goes onto my forehead around my eye and then around onto the other side of my face. I have no idea what it is, it doesnt hurt, it doesnt itch.. it just looks like its blistered with red spots…its….just odd. I called my doctor today who told me to see a dermatologist. this helped me non what so ever.
Avatar_n_tn Many things can cause some itchiness on the face, not just herpes.
Avatar_f_tn he had no signs at the time. Less than 2 days later I developed a rash on both thighs, (slightly red raised bumps) Over the next 2 days it travelled to the crease of my elbow, then my neck and over my knuckles. It was slightly itchy, especially on the hands and neck but never developed into anything more. There were no vesicles, ulcers....no symptomatic other signs. Should I be concerned about the rash?
Avatar_n_tn A couple days ago I developed a rash on my face. It started underneath my right eye one morning before I went to work. It just felt like a patch of dry skin. It started to burn like a sun burn would as soon as I would start to get hot. I thought it might be from stress because I've been really stressed out lately. The rash has spread throughout my face; mainly on my cheeks and nose. They are small very small tiny bumps that are all over.
Avatar_n_tn I am a 45 year old female and as of yesterday I have a painful, itchy rash on my face that is in my t-zone and down my neck, with water blisters, and two larger blistery water blisters near my checks. I changed my make-up to a different color, and I tried a sample at the make-up counter called Stivectin for the Neck, which I applied first.
Avatar_m_tn A Week later I see that my whole body is itching like crazy. See rash all over my body even on face too; Look like blister with clear fluid comes out. No idea what can it be. Got std test after 3month everything neg expect hsv1 pos. This question might be stupid can i been allergic to herpes? Can it be hsv1 spread all over my body? Any idea what could it be?
Avatar_n_tn I have been getting an itchy burning rash all over my face and neck for about one year. It comes and goes and i look as if i have had too much sun. it starts with a little itch that spreads all over if i scratch it. yesterday i went to have an anti hisamine injection and it went away but in the night i was itching again and just now it has spread all over me again and is beggining to burn.
Avatar_f_tn The first sign is usually a tingling feeling, itchiness, or stabbing pain on the skin. After a few days, a rash appears as a band or patch of raised dots on the side of the trunk or face. The rash develops into small, fluid-filled blisters which begin to dry out and crust over within several days. When the rash is at its peak, symptoms can range from mild itching to extreme and intense pain. Treatment of shingles includes antiviral drugs, steroids, analgesics and anti viral eye drops.
Avatar_m_tn I Have been getting a rash on and off for two months and one week now, its kind of slowing down. it looks like red dots(very small) then sometimes it looks like bug bites, and sometimes even a patch of my skin will swell, i know this sounds like hives because it will only last several hours then fades away and shows up elsewhere later on.
Avatar_f_tn The second most common site is the head, particularly on one side of the face. It may also erupt on the neck or lower back. If the face is affected, there is a danger that the infection can spread to the eye or mouth. A rash that follows the side of the nose is a warning that the cornea of the eye is in danger. Outbreaks of shingles often follow the distribution of nerves in the skin. .....
Avatar_f_tn My husband, a few months (approx. 10) ago, got a rash on the trunk of his body and thought it was detergent or something that could be fixed. Now, several months later his rash did not go away and now I have a rash on the trunk of my body. If I didn't know better I would think it is measles, but I know that isn't the case. I am half-way intelligent and know that it isn't the normal, first things you would ask like detergent, fabric softener...
Avatar_m_tn If you dont think its herpes, what else do you think it could be? The rash is on the base of the penis and has tiny red bumps.
Avatar_n_tn Hello, Please elaborate on the symptoms and description of the rash whether it is itchy, non itchy, discharging, dry, smooth, elevated etc so that a list of differentials can be made. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
Avatar_m_tn my daugher has been off Accutane since the end of September - 6 months 30mg/twice daily - This did wonders and her acne cleared, however, by late October/early November she started getting tiny blisters on her face -- clear liquid not a pimple. They show up randomly on her face and not in clusters.
Avatar_n_tn Hi Herpes usually manifests with vesicles on top of a reddish base. The affected area may be burning and tingling. At this point, this may be a superficial skin condition. Folliculitis may be a differential here although, it may still be too early to tell. Continue to follow up with your doctor and have this assessed in the presence of vesicles (bumps with fluid) and pain. If a discharge is noted, then it is best to have this followed up also.
Avatar_n_tn The doctor perscribed a cream for my daughter because she had a rash on her leg. I tried it on my face and the blisters and itching almost went away instantly. The cream is called Hydrozole witch is a broad spectrum anti-fungal and anti-flammatory cream. It contains 1% cortizone and 1% clotrimazole and you should only put a little bit onto the infected area. Once applied, it will almost dissapear instantly. After trying everything, this is the only cream that works.

Avatar_f_tn I’m just wondering if the heat rash is actually a new adaptation of the Herpes on my body? My first Herpes outbreak was more than 25 years ago. As a young bride, I had this breakout on the back of my right thigh, and went to the Health Center at the University. The two ladies took off my bandages and freaked out, telling me it was Herpes and that I should tell my boyfriend right away. No tests. No explanation. No counseling. No drugs. No recommendations of how to take care of it.
Avatar_f_tn Aprox 4 months ago I had a small rash break out on my lower leg right above my ankle. It starred off red and itchy and then a few days later dried up and scanned over and went away after about 10 days. I didn't think anything of it and at the time was unaware if my partners exposure to hsv1. It came back in the same spot about 2 weeks later and I went to the doctor and was told it was poison oak which I found unlikely but went with it.
Avatar_n_tn Hello, You'll have to excuse me for being a little long-winded here, I've never been so scared about anything in my life. If you think you can lend your opinion and read through all of this, I would be very grateful. I'm a 25 year old male in otherwise good health. I've had sex with five girls in my lifetime, mostly long, monogamous relationships.
Avatar_f_tn hi grace can my test for herpes be wrong because my sypmtoms are more like chicken pox i have a rash all along my neck and my face i have no cold sore my lips are chapped and my whole body is scratching
Avatar_n_tn I remember a time when I had a back ache that hurt so bad I was nearly crying, wow anxiety can do some crazy things! And also I've been itching all over my body, hands, arms, legs, face...I have rashes on both hands that are basically gone now but very similar looking to the one that was in my groin area...the skin is VERY dry and flaking...
Avatar_m_tn About 2 years ago, I developed some tingling on my face, buttocks and legs. This was followed by the appearance of some small red bumps on my legs and itching in my private area as well as my chest and legs. I developed a flat rash on my chest. Then my mouth became sore and hurt. I didn’t have any blisters or what I would call sores…more like pimples…but also with the tingling. I went to my gynecologist who examined me and said I looked normal. She thought it could be foliculitis.
Avatar_f_tn hello, I fingered this girl at a party the other night and she also rubbed my penis. We did not have intercourse but I have a genital rash now. It is red on my pubic area and some on my thighs. I don't know if this girl has herpes but the rash does not have puss-filled bumps like usual herpes symptoms. Is it possible to get herpes from fingering just fingering a girl?
Avatar_f_tn I have had the same skin condition since I was born. It comes up on different parts of my face. My eye, on my cheek and on my nose. It's painful at first and then it's itchy and I get a cluster of blisters. The doctors told me when I was little that it was herpes(or cold sores). It leaves really bad scars for years. It takes about two weeks to go away. I've tried to use cold sore medicine and it doesn't make it any better. I just wonder if it's something else.
Avatar_n_tn The only thing I can think of for the cause would be a very minor car accident I was in 2 weeks prior, but I thought I just experienced whiplash. (I hit my face on my window). I didn't have a pinched nerve or anything, as the burning feeling in my thighs and buttocks occured aftet the leg tingling and soreness of both legs.
