Can herpes spread to the chest?

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

Is it possible to have herpes on your face and neck and chest?

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
