Yes


Herpes itself is usually a skin infection. There are many bacteria that can cause skin infection as there are viruses. Fungal infections are also skin infection.

Yes.


If a skin infection is caused by bacteria, then an oral antibiotic might be helpful in treating the process. It would be best to visit a clinic / doc / provider in your area to have the skin problem evaluated and diagnosed. Once the problem is diagnosed, then the most appropriate therapy can be started based upon the diagnosis. Be well.
