So I had chicken pox before I was one year, so when I was twelve I distinctly had shingles. I had a ring of little red bumps right under my prepubescent breasts (and it wasn't just on one side it was a ring, maybe about six), I went to the doctor and he diagnosed it as shingles.
I had unsafe sex with a partner when I was about 17, and thought I could have contracted herpes, I had the flu symptoms afterward, and just one bump on the upper part of my pubic region. I had made contact with another guy and he had gotten one red bump on his penis.
Ever since then, I have not had break-outs except on my thighs, and sometimes my buttocks. I have a friend with HSV2 and she gets it on the inside of her vagina.
Right now I currently have bumps everywhere, like shingles, I have a ring across my breasts (three right now)
I'm getting a little rash you can hardly notice on the right side of my stomach,
I have two main blisters one on my right breast and one on my right hip.
I also have a ring of bumps on my hips, I think i have one on my pubic region, two or three on the front of my thighs,
and four on my buttocks.
I've never been tested, except once i got blood work, the doctor didn't say i had anything wrong except an abnormal paps.
Could I have zoster and simplex?
I've been taking valtrex, and i hate it!!! it makes it worse,
anyone with the herpes virus should take VIRAWAY, it's completely natural, i used to take it previously for shingles or whatever the hell i have and you mix it into a drink and drink a glass of it once a month and not only cleans out your colon, but it pretty much makes the virus go away for the most part by keeping dirty parts not so dirty. I think I got some bumps on my thighs once while taking it only because I forgot to take it one month. seriously, it's so much cheaper than valtrex. herpesclinic.com (i'm not trying to advertise for them, i'm just trying to help everyone out there, i know how itchy it is :[)
Shingles does not reoccur like this. It also doesn't appear on this many dermatones at one time. Honestly I wouldn't even be sure that you had shingles at 12 unless you had had a lesion culture done at that time. A visual diagnosis of shingles in someone that age is not good medicine.
You need to go and be seen. I recommend a dermatologist if you can get in this week. Whatever is going on, it's not likely to be herpes related at all.
