Hi there,

This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.

I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

These sores can be due to the recent infection you had.

Stress from the infection can activate the immune system which can attack the skin lining causing sores.

Another possibility can be the viral infection like herpes simplex type 1 or 2.

This can be confirmed by a clinical evaluation.

Bacterial infection is another possibility as well.

You should see your doctor for further evaluation if not improving.

Best wishes,

It was my pleasure to help you today.

Hello

What you describe is herpes until proven otherwise.

Have it swabbed now, to make sure.

If you wait, it can go away, and that is not an optimal diagnostic situation.

This is Dr. Thomas, a double board certified US clinical doctor of over twenty years.

I would never recommend that a patient "wait" on ulcers in this area.

Get it diagnosed.

Oral valacyclovir can be used 1 gram 3 times daily along with a stronger steroid triamcinolone ointment to help with the cure.

Hello

In terms of using over the counter bacterial creams.

They are not effective or reliably effective against staph bacteria, which would be the common bacteria involved.

For this, mupiricin, a prescription, would be needed.

We do NOT replace a needed doctors visit on the site. We answer questions. We do not diagnose or treat.

With the possibilities of herpes and MRSA, both of which can give this picture, you need to have a doctor look at this in person.

I would be glad to look at pictures as well.

Always find Dr. Thomas in medical, to save time, and to always receive correct, safe, medically up to date, comprehensive answers.

I am board certified in integrative medicine, internal medicine, trained in functional medicine and homeopathy, etc. I am here daily: use my request link as needed and “for Dr. Thomas” in the question title. Give that link to friends, family, associates, etc. Find me as needed for correct, safe and accurate answers.

Please click a positive rating on my answer page. This is the only way we are paid, per rating specifically for the individual expert.

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.
