Herpes zoster?: If all blsiter-like lesions and rash are strictly on one side of the body's midline, then the best bets are either herpes zoster (shingles) or recurrent herpes simplex, probably type 2 (HSV2). Bacteria like staph or strep, allergies, and other dermatitis also are possible. (My bet is shingles.) See doctor ASAP: if either shingles or herpes, effective Rx must be started immediately. Good luck! ...Read more

If not better after one week, I would call a dermatologist for diagnosis and possible prescription. Feel free to read more about these conditions at the link below. I hope that helps. ...Read more

Found what looked like 1 red pimple near butt crack-it was really hard to pop but I did it and clear liquid and blood came out. Herpes?

Difficult to say: Here are some facts. A blood filled cyst near the anus is a hemorrhoid. Herpes lesions are blisters or a cluster of blisters that do not have blood in them. They also hurt and itch. Sometimes with a large bowel movement a small tear can occur that then gets infected. So, an infected anal fissure is a rare possibility. But, a pimple is also in that realm. ...Read more

Abscess cyst: What you are describing is most likely a congenital condition known as a pilonidal cyst. It is not a dangerous condition, but should be fullly evaluated by a physician and then treated appropriately. It may require excision or just incision and drainage and obliteration of the cyst walls. You should be evaluated by a physician to determine the exact diagnosis. ...Read more

Hello,: Hello, I want to start by telling you that I cannot diagnose the cause of your lump. It might be a pilonidal cyst. It is a cyst that usually contains hair and skin debris which is found at the tailbone at the top of the crack on your buttocks. It may be swollen, hard and painful because it could be infected. I would definately see your doctor. Your doctor may refer you to see a general surgeon if this is a pilonidal cyst. Even this isn't the cause, you should get a new mass evaluated. If you see your doctor you can hit two birds with one stone: 1. Get the people who love you off your back and 2.) get this mass diagnosed and treated. God bless. Take good care of yourself. ...Read more
