Tricky: without an exam, I can only give general information, dermatologic conditions are hard to discuss without seeing them.and... a localized skin infection like a boil is quite common and not very significant (may go away on its own). Herpes in theory, but those are generally MULTIPLE shallow ulcers and first episde is usually severe. Local irritation can occur w/out infection. ...Read more
