Cold Sores On The Thigh
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. ...Read more
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.

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!.

Sharp pain in ankle while running. Day after ankle feels hot/cold. Sore feeling with random sharp pains running up leg?
Virus: Two kinds of these are common, and both caused by virus. Least worrisome, is the aphthous ulcer. Occurs on the soft tissues of the mouth -- inside lips, cheeks, under tongue. The worse one is herpes.The first time you get it, it can be anywhere in the mouth and outside the mouth.
