It is not true that herpes (HSV-2) only occurs below the waist. Occurring at other locations however is quite uncommon. In addition, the lesions you describe sound very much like folliculitis. Folliculitis occurs when the pores in your skin get plugged. This allows that normal bacteria that are present on just about every-one's skin to grow and cause what is essentially a pimple.
You say nothing about your exposure but I'm betting this is folliculitis. EWH
Thank you for your answer very helpful. One more question. The 2 pimples do not resemble normal pimples they are reddish/yellowish in color and I think have a vesicle like appearence. My last and only sexual experience was over 1 year ago. I had unprotected vaginal sex. Could this be herepes? Do u suggest a culture or do u think its just a case of bacteria as in a pimple?
