Is it possible to have a herpes break out on your thigh or nose? What type would this be? It's not genital and it's not oral, so what else is there? I can feel it coming days before the rash/blisters show on the skin. If I catch it in time, I can usually get OTC topical such as Abreeva that minimizes the pain and discomfort. Any ideas in what else it could be? My Dr says it could be Shingles, Impentago (sp?), Staff infection or herpes. I need some advise... Are there any sure fire ways to tell the difference between any of these suggestions? 8-|
