Hello there. I have had these red bumps on the back of my neck and spread down to my upper back since January 2012. They are very itchy and there is no liquid oozing out or if squeezed any debris coming out like with acne. I saw my dermatologist in Febuary to discuss with her and she said it was acne even though I was put on accutane, during that time which cleared up my face nicely. The thing with this rash is that it itches like crazy and its not going away with retin-A or an itch reliever cream like elcolm all given to me by my derm. I am running out of solutions. I also was diagnosed with hsv-2 in July 2011 and have been taking 500mg a day of valtrex. I asked my derm. if this could be herpes related and all she said is, "it could be if he was rubbing his affected area on the back of your neck". Please help. This is seriously ruining my life and my self-esteem has been greatly affected. All advice is much appreciated!
