Hi. I am new to herpes. I occasionally get the painful sores on many different parts of my body (like cold sores, but on my head, legs, butt, and also face) and I also get the watery thin-skinned ones that break easily (and are painful to the touch) but also get "deep" pimples on my face and around my nose and under my eyes. My question is... is herpes causing all of these deep pimples too or do I have some other infection? These pimples are always just puss-filled and are not watery like herpes sores can be. Any diagnosis for this?
2nd question: I also get the red itchy scrotum that burns a little. Does anyone have suggestion for curing the scrotum problem?
3rd: Also - my herpes outbreaks seem to continuously roll from one to the next with very little time between occurrences. any thoughts
My regular doc just said herpes.. and didn't specify 1 or 2. I was wondering if I should get a 2nd opinion. I will go to dermatologist. No treatment other than a cream for the sores (abreva). The herpes (it in fact it is...) has not been that bad... just the pimples on/around nose and face. The scrotum thing is bad occasionally too. Will keep you posted. Thanks Grace!
