In brief: Herpes and staff

This would be an extreme rarity.
There are various changes in the skin produced by each of these conditions, and you do not describe any of those, so i cannot help you at this time. I would advise you to see a dermatologist when the lesions are present, and the diagnosis can be cultured and made.
