No, I get folliculitis in my buttock and I don't shave that area. In fact, I don't shave at all, had laser removal
a few years ago. My dermatologist says it's staph.
My symptoms were textbook herpetic, but my tests results are not making any sense. You see, during the first episode I had unilateral swollen lymph nodes, a bad sore throat/flu and around 6-8 ulcers spread on my vulva.
None of my partners is positive for HSV2 and neither I am.
