Ouch: With your other conditions, I would be sure you had herpes, and not contact dermatitis, before treating it as herpes. When untreated, the outbreak usually lasts for a couple of weeks. With modern, anti-HSV therapies, such as acyclovir, the outbreak can either be stopped, or shortened significantly in duration to 3-5 days, with much more mild symptoms. ...Read more
Herpes: The virus starts to multiply when it gets into the skin cells. The skin becomes red and sensitive, and soon afterward, one or more blisters or bumps appear. The blisters first open, scab over, and then heal as new skin tissue forms. During a first outbreak, the area is usually painful and may itch, burn or tingle. Flu-like symptoms are also common. These include swollen glands, headache, muscle. ...Read more
Herpes is unlikely: This is unlikely to be herpes, which doesn't cause simple "red dots", but blisters that become pimple-like or open sores, then heal with scabs. Also, initial herpes usually occurs at site where inoculated, i.e. generally at sites of maximum friction during sex, such as labia, vaginal opening, etc. Recurrent oubreaks can be on thighs, but rarely first infection. See your doctor if still concerned. ...Read more

I need to know if what I have is herpes, I have blisters but they don't hurt and are on my inner thighs they are empty and nearly healed now.
Treatment: If you're sure it's herpes, it can be treated with anti-herpes medication (acyclovir, valacyclovir, or famciclovir), provided you start soon enough. The lesion will go away without treatment, but it may come back in the same place. If it comes back infrequently, you can just treat it when it happens. If it comes back frequently (several times a year), you can take daily therapy to prevent it. ...Read more
Herpes: Genital herpes is a chronic sexually transmitted infection caused by the herpes simplex virus (hsv). Historically, hsv-2 accounted for a majority of genital infections; however, hsv-1, which usually infects the orolabial area, now accounts for up to 50% of first-episode cases. These are often multiple, resulting in shallow, painful ulcers that may merge. The symptoms last for approximately 7-14 d. ...Read more

Folliculitis-not HSV: What you have is a mild folliculitis from shaving. Better to try and 'clip' with scissors (very carefully) or some other method of trimming, not shaving. Shaving can injure the skin and allow bacteria to 'set up shop' as they've done in your case. A few days of bacitracin applied 3 or 4x a day should wipe that out. Herpes hurts like hell, and fungus would itch-so those are ruled out. Feel better! ...Read more
I have a rash on my inner thigh. It is unilateral, not painful, not itchy but has come up with lesions and scabs. Herpes? Or something else?
Herpes? Shingles?: If "lesions" means blisters or sores and rash is recent (a few days) and not long lasting, I would be more suspicious of herpes zoster (shingles). Genital herpes also is possible. Or a simple allergic reaction, or any of several other kinds if dermatitis. Earlier makes diagnosis easier and is very important for successful treatment of either herpes or shingles, so see a doctor ASAP. ...Read more
How can you tell the difference between jock rash and herpes? I had athletes foot then got the rash on the inner thighs
Tines cruris: The rashes look different. Definitive diagnosis is made by culturing a scraping for fungus . This will also tell you what type of fungus it is because different ones will have different characteristics. Viral culture of a vesicle will prove whether herpes simplex is present. Put your socks on before your underpants. Many times the underpants touch your toes and bring fungus into your groin. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Recurring red bumps inner left thigh with hairs coming out that do go away. Could this be possible herpes or can herpes not have hairs coming out.
Not herpes: This partly duplicates my previous reply to the same question, which included "...genital herpes is not a likely cause of 'isolated red bumps on thighs', and for sure isn't the cause of such problems associated with hairs. No worries about herpes." Herpes lesions rarely if ever can "have hairs coming out". ...Read more
