I have HSV1 genitally for about 7 years. I always have my outbreaks in my butt crack (for lack of better words). I noticed a few weeks ago that I had a sore on my right thigh. It went away without any treatment. Earlier this week I notice the same sore (a few actually, but some looked different) on my outer left thigh. I went to the dermatologist and she said it was eczema. However, she just quickly glanced at it. What are the chances that herpes of the thigh can be confused with eczema?
