They often are noticed in various stages of healing. I believe that this is what you are seeing. Continue to treat the infection with topical antibiotics or antibiotics by mouth. ...Read more

The history of a new partner, and then these rashes makes me suspicious. Herpes is very common - most people don't even know they have it. ...Read more
