Customer Question
I want to know if...
I want to know if I am having or if I had a genital herpes outbreak—I don’t know if I have it. I have lots of little dried up pimples on one inner thigh and one white-head pimple on the other inner thigh. Is there a way for me to send pics?

Customer reply replied 2 months ago
Sorry. Not really painful. Itchy maybe. No sweating excessive except maybe down there from warm pants?
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
No treatment. No. I’ve never treated this. I’ve treated the jock itch with cream
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
Still with me?
Dermatologist: DermDoc, Doctor replied 2 months ago

Herpes are usually painful lesions and occur in crop.

You can try to heal these lesions with cream like

1 %hydrocortisone, 1%clotrimazole and neosporin cream.

Also further blood test to rule out herpes may be considered especially if these don't heal well with cream.

HSV 2 IgG
