Skin herpes

Common Questions and Answers about Skin herpes


Avatar f tn about a week ago, maybe around febuary 8th, I started to notice some bumps around the skin of my vagina, mainly around the creases and around the anus area. I figured it was razor bumps or irritation or something, so I didn't pay that much mind to it. as the week went on, there was some itching, not bad, but not light either. i started putting powder with cornstarch and aloe, which helps a bit.
Avatar m tn I can handle the pain, the burn, the outbreaks, the microtears in my skin. What I don`t know how to handle is the rest of my life. Others. My ex girlfriend I was trying to win back and working on myself for. (Ironically enough, I was desperately trying to forget her that day after another fight). My confidence feels like it has just been shot down by a bazooka. "Helloooo Ladies, yes, I have H! OF course it is contagious! Can you get it with a condom? Of course, that is how I got it!
Avatar f tn Back on November 13, 2016 I had protected sex with a female. Since then I have been unusually sick at one point, been diagnosed with a varicocele, had pains when sitting, frequent uruination, constipation/diarrhea, loss of appetite, loss of weight and muscle, and acne. I got tested for everything, including herpes twice (February 22 & March 13, both cake back negative). I have troubles staying asleep at night almost everyday.
Avatar n tn Hello, I cannot confirm anything without examination and moreover you have not given any history and description of the rash, so it can be rash due to friction rub,folliculitis, boil or in the worst scenario a herpes blister. Apply warm compresses, Neosporin ointment and calamine lotion and avoid messing with it. You can take anti-inflammatory pain killers like ibuprofen or acetaminophen. If the lump persists then it will be best to get it evaluated from a dermatologist. I hope it helps.
Avatar m tn Hello, You have not mentioned the site but such kind of sores can be due to boils, viral infections like herpes sores or eruthema nodosum or erythema multiforme. You should get a culture sensitivity of these sores done as you may need a course of antibiotics or other specific antimicrobials for the infection. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.
Avatar n tn Hi Skin rashes that occur during pregnancy can be non-specific (such as due to allergies, medicines, insect bites, skin infections, viral infections, parasites, tumours) or rashes specific to pregnancy called as specific dermatoses (skin disorders) of pregnancy. The various examples of pregnancy rashes are PUPPP - (pruritic urticarial papules and plaques of pregnancy), papular dermatitis of pregnancy, prurigo gestationis, herpes gestationis and rarely impetigo herpetiformis.
Avatar n tn I noticed a bump on my boyfriends penis the other day near the bottom of the shaft and it sort of looks like a skin tag but the skin is actually very dry just on that bump an no where else. I have looke a pictures of herpes and genital warts and skin tags and blocked hair follicles and none of these seemed to be it.
Avatar n tn you can't pop skin tags. I'd go for a 2nd opinion. Herpes wouldn't hang around for a month unchanged either.
Avatar m tn Hi, Just wondering if herpes can change shape as in start off as nicks in the skin (like when you take a chunk out of your skin with your nail)and then look like a graze (like when you take the top layer off your skin) which heals without scabbing or crusting? Just shrinks and fades in less than a week?
Avatar f tn Hi, i just had a second outbreak of genetal herpes. How long should i abstain from intercourse?
Avatar f tn You can get it thru receiving oral sex, genital sex and even just naked direct skin on skin contact. How was she diagnosed as having herpes? Was it cultured as being hsv1 or hsv2?
Avatar m tn I got a small patch of red skin by my foreskin it doesnt have any bumps or irratation of any kind. I havent had any flu like symptons. I had unprotected sex about 2 weeks ago so im kinda disturbed to see this there.
Avatar m tn Your encounter here was nothing sexual. Herpes requires direct skin-to-skin contact. The bumps on her arms could be anything. I have lots of bumps on my arms. The other STD's I am not 100% on but I can tell you that the reason we call them STD's is because the first S means Sex. You have to have sex to get anything. Nothing to worry about is your bottom line.
Avatar n tn Keeping the affected area moistened can promote skin healing and relief of symptoms. It would be advisable to consult a skin specialist for your symptoms and a proper clinical examination. Let us know if you need any other information and post us on how you are doing. Regards.
Avatar m tn Some days the bumps are pretty flat to the skin while other days they will slightly raise (this is when the white heads form). Is this herpes or do I have skin irritation from shaving and these are ingrown hairs?
Avatar n tn One area on my right thigh appears chafed, possibly from this area rubbing skin-on-skin. this herpes, or possibly a heat rash, or something else? Any thoughts?
Avatar n tn If they have been there a while its not herpes... Doesnt sound like herpes anyhow. See a Dr to find out!!
Avatar f tn herpes is only transmitted through skin to skin contact. if the person you gave oral to has genital herpes then you are most likley to contract it.
Avatar m tn Last month i had a HJ from a random girl, no sexual intercourse only skin to skin contacts and i kissed her body and her face but not her lips, two days ago i had tingling on my lips 5 -6 hours and it's gone no other symptoms i did the herpes antibodies test yesterday and the results will be out tonight. is tingling lips means herps 100%? or it can be from anxiety or something else?
Avatar f tn Had brief unprotected skin to skin contact a good two-3 months ago. Been having stinging shock sensation that been on and off mainly when sitting . Crawling feeling in penis shaft and tip, and burning buttocks . Went and got tested for all STDs all came back negative still waiting on herpes results . What's the chances I'm an asymptomatic carrier from my recent exposure? No lesions or bumps yet up to date .Just random feelings In penis ,buttocks , sometimes thighs and aching but barely .
Avatar f tn Couldn't I of gotten it when I touched her because that's skin to skin contact then touched my genitals ?
Avatar n tn if herpes is only transmitted by skin contact, can you go swimming in a pool without putting others at risk
Avatar n tn Then today my neck was ichy and when I scratched it skin flakes came off. I have very dry/ sensitive skin so I didn't think much of it. When I got home I found a large rash on my neck and spots near my mouth. There are no bumps and its not ichy and it does not burn. Its just red. My skin is extremely dry so its been pealing like crazy. I was wondering is this a symptom of herpes? I am very concerned.
Avatar m tn It is only one and had a hair that had grown back into the skin. I was wondering if an ingrown hair could have caused the blister or should I be concerned?
Avatar f tn it's best to be seen though and make sure that indeed this is herpes going on and not a bacterial skin infection.
Avatar n tn can you get herpes from someone that has it and takes ice out there cup and put it down your shirt and it lands on your skin
