Small White Scabbed Sore That Wont Go Away
My outer ear itched really badly, and then I scratched it and it scabbed. A small sore is left, healing. Can it be eczema? Bug bite? Difference?
Healing: Likely still healing. Give it time. See MD if persists beyond another 10 days. ...Read more

Herpes virus is spread by close contact such as kissing and sexual intercourse. You can have herpes and have only mild symptoms or no symptoms. Lest hope you didn't infect them. ...Read more
