Can HSV 1or2 travel without contact or is it shingles? Shin has itchy blisters with shinbone/leg/groin pain/fatigue. Have had HSV forever.
See answer: If you have orofacial or genital herpes (hsv-1/hsv-2), you cannot transmit the infection to another part of your body after initial infection occurs. That said, with genital herpes, one has infection of the l-4, l-5, and s-1 nerve roots which innervate the rectal area, buttocks and lateral aspect of the thigh and so outbreaks can occur in those areas. Shingles can affect any area of the body. ...Read more

My leg has a fungus on it and what the dr gave me doesn't touch it. It's hot prickly blisters that itch like mad sometimes. What can I put on it?

Get pramasone at any local pharmacy and store it in the refrigerator. Use it 5-6 times a day in between your anti fungal cream to get the itch temporarily under control. If this isn't improving in 2-4 weeks, get rechecked. ...Read more
