devoed

had a bad rash down below but never went to the doctor I didnt know what it was but I knew it wasnt normal. then a while after that i noticed a itchy rash on my chest I thought they were connected but then thought I was just being paranoid agian never went to the doctor. now i get lumps all over my face but 3 different doctors i went to say its dermatitis, acne and foliculitus. I've had a couple of swabs taken from my face but came back negative probably cause they werent in their active stages. I don't know what to do I know its herpes cause they itch hurt and my whole face tingles. I feel so dumb that i never went to the doctor when I first had my rash down below so I would've known that it can spread to other parts of your body I will regret it for the rest of my life. Im going to a dermatologist this week and hopfully he will take me seriously. I want to know has anyone else spread it to their face and what are some home remedies I can try

What you've described can be MANY things. Just because it itches and tingles doesn't neccesarily mean it's herpes. There are many skin conditions that spread as a result of touching other areas of the body. Moreover, it could have just surfaced in a new area just because.

I wouldn't go trying any remedies until you are certain what your condition is. If this next doc is certain it's not herpes, I would bet your bottom dollar it's not. I'm always self-diagnosing, swear I have everything I read.:rolleyes: Just last week, my eyes were burning, I convinced myself it was occular herpes. There's a whole slew of conditions that can cause eye burning..

Don't stress over something that may not be. Keep us updated!
