I guess I got arrogant by thinking I was breezing through this first ob. After about 4 days, the one sore I had stopped hurting, but I have some new problems that I'd like an opinion on.

The morning after my sore stopped burning/hurting, I woke up with a strange ache/pain in my feet and legs (primarily the bottoms of my feet). By the evening, I noticed two clusters of what looked like whitehead pimples on my butt cheek (not near the original sore). They did not hurt. By the time I woke up this morning, I have an additional spot on the bottom of my foot that does not have a head, is barely raised, but is making it very difficult to walk. It feels like a cut, but does not look like it at all. I have also had a "stitch" in my side for the last two days, but don't really know if this is related.

My doctors office is not open today and due to a pretty devastating series of tornados in the area last night, the ER's and walk-in clinics are pretty packed. I even tried to call Planned Parenthood, but could never get through.

My question-- are these new conditions just related to the ob? (they're just in such strange places) I'd be willing to take the time to wait at clinic, but don't want to if it's just more symptoms of the original outbreak. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!

DAMN I hate this!!

Hi...I'm no doctor, but those things sound completely unrelated to me. I have never had herpes lesions that resembled whiteheads. Plus, I think it would be extremely unlikely that you would develop lesions on the soles of your feet. Same for the stitch in your side. I hope this helps you relax a little...:)

Appreciate the quick reply. I've wondered all day if maybe my immune system is just weak from fighting the break out. Maybe a reaction to the antibiotics they have me on.

Great- appears that I may have something ELSE to worry about now. ha ha TGIF!!! :|

If I was a horse, I think this is about the time they'd start thinking about putting me down. ha ha

No, I bet you're fine, really. I have had the "stitch in the side" sensation in the past and I think it's nothing. The whiteheads are probably whiteheads. It's easy to get them especially where the elastic from your underwear might rub. As for the foot pain, I have freaked myself out in the past thinking that I had nerve damage or drug reactions and guess what? It was nothing. The problem is that this is a vulnerable time for you and it's natural for your imagination to run a little wild. If you're really scared, a trip to the doc would probably be in order.

Take care...

      To give some context I hve been suffering with this for the last 6/7 years this came about after I had varicella zoster on the inside of my body a week after I started getting clusters of spots on the top of my buttock they are not painful as such can be itchy at times but majority of the time I don’t feel it when I have an outbreak. I’ve been to various doctors who say it’s a fungal skin infection or a bacterial skin infection. I’ve asked if it’s herpes but they will say it’s not without even testing it.

      Hello there @momma267 and welcome. There is no reason to believe that what you have there is other than a pressure sore, something that has emerged from rubbing with clothing or butt cheeks and exacerbated by bacteria or yeast.  Note that the first you’d learn of herpes is unlikely to be on your butt, instead where it enters your body, this is usually within the vaginal lips for females.

      So to begin with, I am 26 and have been with the same partner for 8 years. I have only been with three people ever, one completely protected and the other we were both our firsts. I got this rash on my but while pregnant and my doctor said she was testing for it and I'm so confused. I've had two babies, breastfeed, and never had anything as much as a cold sore. Does this look like something anyone has experienced? I used fragrant soap down there and am hoping it's contact dermatitis or a heat rash from sweating and gaining so much weight.  Advice would be helpful. I'm stressing out a bit as I am pregnant.

      @WilsoInAus could you kindly have a look :) also how long does it typically take for herpes blisters to develop into sores

      Hi, it is me again, apologies for the recent influx of posts. I've noticed a slightly raised area on the middle of my top lip with what i feel are some bumps. i do have a habit of biting my lips a fair bit and this area is frequented by my teeth. I haven't noticed any unusual/abnormal tingling or burning or pain sensations. the photos are a bit difficult to focus on them but do these seem like the start of cold sores? note: I will be visiting the drs for an std checkup in the coming week. https://imgur.com/gallery/YLVA5us
