Pea size bump on eyelid-no blisters but discharge&crusts,light hurt before.Is it HSV virus?Had HSV blisters-same eyelid(diff location)few weeks ago.

HSV likes stress: Herpes is a nasty virus, and takes advantage of us when we are 'weak' -such as after some kind of stress. Herpes also loves to come out in the same area -so it could well be HSV again. Sometimes a bacteria (Staph) will attack the eyelid-this would be a sty and is quite painful. If it's not getting better, I would show it to a doctor who could help with directed therapy: antiviral or antibacterial ...Read more

Neither will have any effect against herpes. If it was a boil you had, then the draining itself is probably therapeutic; if the redness/hard area extends, i would see a doctor for systemic antibiotics. ...Read more

Red pimple like bumps on my left inner thigh in crotch area. Painless and not itchy. If popped pus comes out.I have genital HSV 1. They wont go away?

And I'll bet this doesn't look much like your previous genital herpes outbreak(s), right? Anyway, see a doctor and take it from there. Good luck. ...Read more
