Herpes: You will probably need to see a physician to determine what you have. To come to a diagnosis you need the history which you provided but you also need to see the lesion ( the exam ).

Why STD?: Herpes on the face is present in most adults. Most of them don't know it & have no symptoms. Most common triggers are sun exposure & fevers. Your dr can give you a pill if it is a problem. The creams are a waste of $.
