I had sex with a woman 3WEEKS LATER I get these small pimples on chest and have a genital herpes break out with a cold. Could I have hiv.
Not HIV: The rash of a new HIV infection is not pimple-like, and occurs along with fever, sore throat, lymph node enlargement, etc. Three weeks is too long for onset of new herpes and HIV doesn't cause cold symptoms like stuffy nose or cough. If you remain worried, visit the Public Health STD clinic at Harborview (which I used to direct) to check out your symptoms and herpes, and maybe HIV testing. ...Read more
You get herpes where you are infected with it. It does not or cannot move or transfer to another part of a body.

Just wondering if you get diagnosed with herpes does that make you sterile? Or can it affect breast feeding your baby as I have a 9 wk and 3 day baby
Worrisome issue: Herpes is more worrisome in some respects than some std's.Spread of the germ to a baby prior to or during delivery may result in a devastating neonatal encephalitis that leads to death or permanent disability. A new case acquired after the kids birth is unlikely to affect breast feeding unless s/he has contact with lesions. The germ stays away from your fallopian tubes so sterility is unlikely. ...Read more
Drinking water of call girl. I don't know her status. Touching her breast, buttucks, panty and also bath towel by hand. No sex, no kiss. By this get herpes?
Yes, anywhere: For herpes, I suggest BHT (butylated hydroxytoluene), a fat soluble antioxidant, available without a prescription. Take a total of 2 grams per day, in divided doses. Lesions should start clearing up in several days. Don't drink alcohol when taking BHT. Download free e-book, "Wipe out Herpes with BHT" by Steve Fowkes. You can also dissolve BHT in coconut oil, and apply topically. ...Read more
Unusual: Is this herpes simplex (odd location), or herpes zoster (only on one side of body in nerve root distribution)? Either, if the diagnosis is correct should not last longer than 10-14 days, but this depends on many factors including your immune status and whether this is primary or recurrent infection, etc. ...Read more
Yes, but not likely: Each individual place that a herpes virus invades is subject to recurrent appearances (that is what a cold sore is). This can happen in the skin anywhere on your body. However, it would be unusual for 3 separate spots (face, neck and chest) to have outbreaks at the same time if you never had it before. An exception may be if your immune system is very weak (like taking steroids). ...Read more

Mucous membranes: Herpes simplex occurs on mucous membranes. Herpes-zoster occurs on specific areas of skin in a nerve root distribution. Random pimples probably aren't herpes. Herpes lesions always have a blister in the middle of them early in the eruption. Then they crust over. Only way to be sure is to have an examination. See your doctor. ...Read more

There are two types: Herpes comes in two viruses. One is type one (used to be called simplex or 'oral' herpes) and type two (used to be called 'genital' herpes). You only get herpes in one location. The same infection does not move or migrate. It sure sounds like you also have herpes type one. I would advise a blood test to prove or disprove this. ...Read more
