Cold Sores On Arm Or Leg
I've had cold sores once per year for years but now have herpes once a month on different parts of my skin like elbow, knee. Why? I don't play sports
This is something: I think would be better handled by your primary doctor. If they feel it's herpes outbreak monthly or more frequently:you could be prescribed medication. This medince could be taken daily to supress frequent outbreaks.
I have a spot in my arm that has red irritated skin with small fluid filled bumps. I have cold sores and am wondering if it could be related to that.?
Possibly: Related. If you are suspecting a herpes infection, which is whst cold sores are, it would be helpful to see your Doctor to culture that fluid for a definitive diagnosis.
Yes: Yes you can though rare. It depends on the site of the initial herpes infection.
Can herpes appear other places than lips mouth eyes and genitals? I get cold sores on my lips often but now I have had breakout on hands arms back
Yes: Herpes can appear throughout the body. Common infection of the skin or mucosa may affect the face and mouth (orofacial herpes), genitalia (genital herpes), hands (herpetic whitlow), eye (herpes keratitis) and even brain (herpes encephalitis). Please consult your physician to make sure that you do not have a spread of herpatic infection.See 2 more doctor answers
Cluster of small, somewhat red raised bumps, not itchy, on upper thigh. Is this genital herpes? Never been sexually active, had cold sores in the past
Not herpes: You cannot have genital herpes if you never had sex; genital herpes is unlikely to first show up as a rash on the thigh; and your description doesn't sound like HSV. This definitely is not genital herpes, and also not HSV1 from your oral infection. If the rash continues to bother you or doesn't clear up, see a doctor for professional diagnosis.
Son may have cold sore, touching it and then grabbed my leg/underwear up my skirt. I'm 36 wks prego. Worried about herpes and baby. Can I get it?
No cause for worry: Herpes is not by such contact. To be ultra safe, mention this to your obstetrician. If she feels it necessary, you can have a blood test to see if you might already have HSV1; if so, you can't get it again. Until your baby is a month old, it will be important to prevent intimate contact of your baby with your son (e.g. no kissing). Otherwise no worries! . Best wishes for you and your growing family

Hi. I have recently had pimples in the beginning on face and legs, however they are now almost like a cold sore and have spread. A liquid also weeps?
See a dermatologist: It is very difficult to be specific without being able to actually see the skin lesions. See a dermatologist for diagnosis and treatment.

My cousin has a cold sore. Soon after he touched it. He touched my arm can get infected. He only touched for a few seconds and I had no cuts?
My cousin has a cold sore. Soon after he touched it. He touched my arm. Could I get the virus. He only touched for a few seconds and I had no cuts?
Touch: Highly unlikely, but I sure hope you washed your arm as soon as your cousin touched your arm.
My Cousin has a cold sore soon after he touched it he touched my arm. He touched my arm for 3-4 seconds. Could I catch the virus like that I had no cuts?
Unlikely: Herpes is highly transmittable, but that brief a contact is unlikely to cause infection unless there was an open sore and a break in your skin surface. You should be fine, just be on the lookout for an out reak in the local area for up to a month
I was using arm&hammer advance white toothpaste &now I think have a cold sore on the corner of my mouth and maybe a pimple on my lip? How do I fix it?
Toothpaste?: Could be from toothpaste but is unusual. Do you think you might have been exposed to herpes simplex virus. Kissed a boy with a cold sore recently? Or do you have history of cold sores. Dr can prescribe Valtrex (valacyclovir) or you can buy abreva lip sore treatment over the counter. Don't squeeze pimple or anything on lips, since that will create greater infection.See 1 more doctor answer
Probably not: You would need an exam to determine the best possible diagnosis for any "bumps" on your elbow, but generally speaking, elbow lesions are not usually associated with cold sores. Best wishes.See 1 more doctor answer
I have two pinkish bumps on my inner thigh. They don't hurt and aren't itchy that much at all. It looks like a cold sore in a way. Any idea?
Go see your doctor: I hate to say it but there's not enough information for us/me to hazard a guess. Your doctor needs to examine you and take a thorough history. After all, the possibilities are almost endless ranging from lipoma to sebaceous cyst to ingrown hair to who knows what. Bottom line, go see your doc & give her/him as much info (history) as possible including travel, new meds & foods plus ill contacts.
