Hello this is Dr. Salama MD,
Can you upload a picture of the blister?
It doesn't look like herpes in the picture you sent me.
It looks like a bug bite in that picture.
I would treat it with bacitracin 3 times a day and hydrocortisone 1% twice a day.
Let me know if you have any other questions.
If not, please don't forget to leave a positive rating (bonus appreciated) as that's the only way I get credit for answering your question.
Yes, that's true.
Typically, herpetic lesions are crusted on the edges which I don't see in the picture.
It's true that bug bites and herpes can be misunderstood for each other.
It's reassuring that your tests were negative.
I would not be afraid at all.
There is no reason to worry.
Yes, you may continue as normal.
Apply the bacitracin as I mentioned earlier.
Herpes does not have pus.
I want you to be reassured knowing that you do not have herpes.
I noticed that you left a positive rating for another doctor but did not do here as you said you would.
I would appreciate it if you could fulfill your promise and leave the rating as you said.
