Thank you for taking the time to review my question. History, 10 months ago had protected sex with unknown individual (one night stand). 2 1/2 months ago, seemed to break out in a rash which consisted of tiny, pin-head size red bumps all over my upper legs and buttox, with only about 4 appearing on my fore arms. These bumps were extremely itchy. They did not appear in "patches", but rather more of a shot-gun pattern. They did/do not appear to be blisters in any way, they did not break or ooze. There were none on my genitals. Although they went away after a very long time, they seem to be back. This episode doea not seem to be as bad as before, but still a concern. So here's the question, have you or your coleagues ever seen herpes present itself this way? If not herpes, any idea?
I think you have a rash of some kind, perhaps folliculitis (blocked pores.) This rash does not sound related to sexual transmission. I think you ought to see a dermatologist to get a proper diagnosis and treatment recommendation, but again I don't think there will turn out to be a connection with your sexual encounter.
I have a similar condition and am wondering if you found out anything new or have had any sucessful cure.
I've been to dermitolgists and they are stumped. Their latest thinking is I'm allergic to my meds which I've been taking for several years
