I have a couple red dots on my inner thigh I'm scared its herpes?

Herpes is unlikely: This is unlikely to be herpes, which doesn't cause simple "red dots", but blisters that become pimple-like or open sores, then heal with scabs. Also, initial herpes usually occurs at site where inoculated, i.e. generally at sites of maximum friction during sex, such as labia, vaginal opening, etc. Recurrent oubreaks can be on thighs, but rarely first infection. See your doctor if still concerned. ...Read more

I have numbness in the top of my left thigh. It used to come about from sitting a certain way.  Now it has been constant for 2 weeks.  Herpes a cause?

Not herpes: HSV infections don't do anything like this. Despite what you can find on line, HSV idoes not cause neurological symptoms that persist more than 1-2 days, immediately before an obvious outbreak. Since previously brought on by leg position, almost certainly this is compression of a nerve in the upper leg or nerve root exiting the spine. It could be the start of more serious problems; see a doctor. ...Read more

Rash in between thighs, around but cheeks. Many red dots and not blistering. Herpes? It has been hot and I have been wearing skirts

Not herpes: This isn't herpes. Wrong symptoms, wrong location. It sounds like irritation from heat, sweat, etc, or possibly a superficial bacterial or fungal infeciton. Keep the area clean and dry. Wash with soap and water a couple times a day, plus a little cornstarch or talcum powder. Then try a jock itch medicine. If these things don't clear it up, see a doctor. But no worries about herpes. Good luck! ...Read more
