Third, 2 days is a bit early -- usually 3-10 days. But see doctor if remain concerned. ...Read more

I have a pimple like bump with a white head. It seemed to look different with in minutes after taking a shower. Could this be herpes or just a pimple?

Pimple: Where is the bump? Is it full of fluid or is it firm? Does it recur in the same place? Herpes occurs in clusters at point of contact (oral or genital) or along nerves (dermatomal). When you take a shower, you are changing your body temperature temporarily which alters the blood supply & color of the skin. Your bump is most likely an acne comedone (whitehead). Your pcp can help diagnose it better. ...Read more
