Hi

Not fungal and not viral for sure

Just a little irritation from shaving but nothing that needs any treatment at all

Thank you! I was nervous because last time my fungal issue started with a few dots and flared up by night. It wouldn’t make sense since I’ve been using the cream it shouldn’t survive. I did use my electric trimmer a day or two ago. Thank you doctor, this isn’t hsv, fungal, or any worry? Should I use Neosporin, or just leave it?

Not HSV and not fungal my friend

Just leave it alone

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
