Dr. Tony T. Ho answered:

Can herpes simplex cause rashes instead of blisters?

Yes

Cold_sore
Yes, classic lesions are blisters, but I have seen it cause anything from rashes to bullae (large fluid-filled blisters). However, it is important to evaluate other causes of rash and not just assuming it would be HSV, as it would be an atypical presentation.

Dr. Keith Ramsey answered:

How big can your herpes simplex rash be?

Smaller than a coin

Skin_rash
It is usually small enough that a dime would cover the entire thing. It can spread though. It can cover the entire body if there are lots of breaks in the skin or a suppressed immune system.

Dr. Ryan Phasouk answered:

For how long does herpes simplex live outside the human body?

Tough to say

Shingles
It is generally accepted that the virus that causes herpes simplex does not live outside of the human body long enough to be cause fomite transmission, that is transmission to another human by way of an inanimate object (such as a towel or toilet seat).

I've got a rash on my forehead between my eyes and on my nose. is that a typical symptom of herpes simplex?

No

Rash
the most common condition affecting these areas in the way you describe is rosacea. You could also have shingles (zoster) . Check with your ophthalmologist to rule out or treat these conditions. H simplex usually causes a very localized wet blistery lesion on the skin rather than a rash.
