What could cause rash, blistering/swelling, and scabbing on ear. With no history of burns, scrapes, insect bites, or contact with allergens?

These antibodies should prevent her from getting NEW infections (new locations) of the same herpes strain. However, one could have cold sores from Herpes 1, and then get new lesions at other places from Herpes 2. ...Read more
