On the lower leg i get this almost cut looking rash, doc said maybe herpes. 1. Does that man I have genital herpes too? 2. If it is herpes can I transfer it to my genitals by touch? 3. How i get it?

On the lower leg i get this almost cut looking rash, doc said maybe herpes. 1. Does that man I have genital herpes too? 2. If it is herpes can I transfer it to my genitals by touch? 3. How i get it?

Herpes: I know another physician answered this, but I have a different response. Before any other action, you must get the herpes blood tests. All adults should know their herpes status. 90% of people with herpes do not have outbreaks. To culture your rash this late in the game would be unwise. A viral culture would be meaningless if done more than a day or two after the blisters show up. ...Read more

I have a blister like rash around my genital area but 3 of my doctor said it looks like rash from shaving but worried it might be genital herpes?

Get it tested.: To be sure it is not genital herpes, it would be wise to get this tested. A smear/swab and tissue culture can make sure of the diagnosis. A tzank prep. Would show special cells called giant cells. However, if 3 doctors were not convinced, you might want to just wait a while. Genital herpes has other symptoms, like discharege, and swelling of the lymph nodes of the pelvis so be sure. ...Read more

I have a red rash that itches on my groin. The doc said its shingles but i'm not buying it. I think it's genital herpes? Any advice? What should I do

Both are herpes: Viruses. Herpes zoster (shingles) are almost always on one side in a band like pattern and simplex can be on both sides at the same time if occurring for the first time but if recurrent usually just a small patch. Shingles is uncommon but can occur in a 29 year old. ...Read more

Will genital herpes cause buttock ache/ back of leg ache even though rash is elsewhere? I.e penis

Will genital herpes cause buttock ache/ back of leg ache even though rash is elsewhere? I.e penis

Probably not, but...: This depends on the nature and timing of hte pain. If the buttoch/leg discomfort is at the same time as a genital herpes outbreak, or starts 1-2 days before, and if it clears up in another day or two. they may be linked. If you're talking about more chronic or persistent, ongoing pain, and not associated with herpes outbreaks, then almost certainly it's an entirely separate problem. ...Read more
