Just curious: how do you tell the difference between dermatitis herpetiformis and herpes gladiatorum?
Easy: Suppose you're sure it's one or the other, which you probably aren't. DH is symmetric. HG is wherever you got rubbed on the mat with the wrestler who had the herpes lesion. HG is likely to come up all at once, while DH less so. DH will usually test positive for anti-gluten stuff. Hope this helps. There are a few other painful small-blister diseases as well -- read up. Best wishes. ...Read more
What's the difference between lip eczema/dermatitis and cold sores/herpes? How do I know which i have?

Dermatitis?: Herpes simplex i usually involves the junction of the skin and mucous membrane. If your lesions were confined to the lips only, then it was likely from something else. Dermatitis involves only the skin (not the lip) and has no diagnostic meaning by itself. If the problem still has not gone away, get another opinion (dermatologist?). ...Read more
Why would my lips be sore and red on the outside? Could it be eczema or dermatitis or herpes/cold sores, I do not have blisters.
I have a rash under my beard. Started after oral sex with a woman. Herpes on my face or sometging else?
Prob. something else: It's unlikely to be herpes and very unlikely to have anything to do with oral sex. It could be a folliculitis (infection of hair follicles) or a pseudofolliculitis (ingrown hairs) or seborrheic dermatitis or one of several other things. Let a dermatologist make a proper diagnosis and start you on treatment. ...Read more
