I pulled on a hangnail! Then the next day I had a huge blister swell up! It is larger than dime and very swollen! Any suggestions?

Hi, first of have your ever had exposure to a herpes sore with your fingers, if not then it would not be herpes related. Even if you did the skin on the hands is very thick so unless your a dental professional not using gloves, the chances you contracted it from casual affairs is really quite low.

If your concered have it swabbed just to rule it out.
