Itchy rash

Itching
Yes, it in fact could be a form of herpes virus. The best way to find out for sure it to go to your PCP or a Dermatologist the next time it appears, so we can help you obtain a diagnosis. Then, you may be able to get some help to prevent recurrences or otherwise treat your condition.

Dr. Laura Webb answered:

How safe is it to sleep with a female with genital herpes, unprotected, she has not had a break for 3 months ?

Not very safe

Sleep
Unprotected sex with multiple partners is never truly safe. You are focusing on her genital herpes. However, by having unprotected sex, you are exposing yourself to every partner she has ever had. Do you know what other exposures she has had and what other STDs she might have? Unprotected sex with multiple partners is never truly safe.

What does it mean when you have a bump on your lip for months but it's not herpes?

Bump on Lip

Head-mouth-lips
There are a number of possibilities to explain the bump on your lips. This could be a venous lake which are nothing more than blood vessels. This could be cysts on the lips which would be treated with intralesional cortisone injections or excision. This could be a myxoid cyst which is a blocked salivary gland duct and would have to be excised.

Dr. Kyle W. Shank answered:

Ulcers on roof of mouth?antiviral for 6 months no relief!if not herpes what could it be?

Biopsy

Head-mouth
I definitely agree that it needs to be re-evaluated. My rule of thumb is that an ulcer that does not resolve in 2weeks needs to be biopsied. There are several types of cancer that can show up on the roof of the mouth, so this needs to be addressed ASAP. I see that you are relatively close to my office mid you like, we can get you in before the weekend for the procedure.

If you kiss somebody with herpes and you don't have any symptoms for 6 months ? Should I worry about ?

most likely no

Virus
The chance of getting herpes 6 months after being exposed to it is very rare. However, the virus that causes herpes may live in your skin for a very long time. So is it possible after 6 months? Yes but very very unlikely.

Can genital herpes show up 5-6 months later?

Yes

Genital herpes can first make it's presence know even years later. The virus hides in the spinal nerves and can come out in response to various triggers such as weakening of the immune system, physical trauma, stress, food triggers and many others.
