Dermatology Questions? Ask an Online Dermatologist.
Thank you for your question. My name is***** and I will do my best to provide a useful input.
Have antibiotics or oral steroids been tried?
Sores that do not respond to Valtrex and Acyclovir over 7-10 days are not herpes or shingles - do you have any other medical problems like inflammatory bowel disease, arthritis, diabetes etc.?
Would you be comfortable taking a picture of the sores and uploading it here? If not do let me know and I will still let you know my thoughts on the matter.
You can email the photographs to***@******.*** with my name (For Dr Nair dermatology expert) in the subject line but they usually take a few hours (usually 6-8 hours, sometimes 24 hours) to forward these to me. If you choose this option please make sure you ask for an acknowledgment from JustAnswer that they have received your mail, and let me know that you have sent it. Please note that you must send this from the same email address you registered with justanswer.
