Me and my boyfriend got tested for herpes (i & ii) and it was negative. He recently got a pimple on his lip, it looks like his acne on face I recently had chlamydia but got it treated. His face is really sensitive. should i get retested?

Me and my boyfriend got tested for herpes (i & ii) and it was negative. He recently got a pimple on his lip, it looks like his acne on face I recently had chlamydia but got it treated. His face is really sensitive. should i get retested?

Low risk, no worries: A single pimple probably is just that. Herpes usually causes a cluster of a few blister-like lesions that then become pimple-like or scab over. The blood tests are quite reliable, but miss up to 30% of HSV1 infections, the cause of oral herpes. If your bf continues to have similar pimples in more or less the same spot, he should get it checked out. But for now there's no need for you to be tested. ...Read more

My song is 9 years old and he have acne in the face. I took him to a dermatologist and he prescribed a cream, but even still. Why a kid have acne?

A hormone labeled dhea-s stimulates the sebum production in the oil glands of the skin. It has a greater effect on acne than that of estrogen or testosterone & some in puberty with low levels of dhea-s have minimal acne. ...Read more

I was recently diagnosed  w/hsv2 and get outbreaks before period.  I have blisters on my arm. Can I pop them? I applied desonide seems to help w/itch

You can, but don't.: Generally these will open and create a small ulcerated area on the skin by themselves. If you squeeze or open them in an unsterile fashion they have a chance of becoming secondarily infected, and although i hate driving business away, you don't need added problems. ...Read more
