Customer Question

Hi, I was diagnosed with genital herpies about a year ago. Every since then I have been itching and the itching has spread to my armpits stomach and lower back. There are just small lesion that look like dry skin almost unnoticeable but the itching never goes away. Hot water makes it feel better for the moment.
