Is this your finger or a family members? Do you also have whitlow but yours looks differently? I am just not clear as to whose finger this is--if it is yours, does it hurt or tingle?

Ok, a few clarifying questions--for your suspected whitlow on your finger/hand, how does it look and what does it feel like and have you been tested (via blood test) to see if you have the herpes virus (or, why do you suspect your issue on your hand/finger is herpes)? For your family member, why would you suspect this is herpes--do they think it is herpes or had contact with herpes?

I will provide a photo of my bumps on my palms, but i had (protected) sex with someone who has ghsv. Type unknown.. but i kissed him, also had some hand foreplay, now i had a old cut on my palm. It was mostly healed.. so i started getting these clear bumps on my palms my doc says its Dyshidrotic eczema, but i get tingling in my fingers, and in the side of my hand. Ive been to 2 othr doc. That says eczema too . Ive had 3 igg. And two swabbs (diff. Areas) all neg. BUT that fam. MEM. Is my daughters finger. Even tho ive been wearing gloves\ mittens i still think she could have gotten it .. it doesnt seem to bothr her. Its only noticeble when her hands are red. Not so much when they arnt.

      I'm 99% confident that these are caused by Herpes. This is what they looked like when I first caught the virus, and in the same spots as well, although now much milder and smaller in size.  I have tested positive via swab when I first got the virus, and two times via blood test. However, since several people here are doubting my symptoms are caused by HSV, I might do another swab just to be sure. It's still good to rule anything else out beforehand.

      And btw  @ayekayelle I’m sorry you’re considering divorce. I hope you are able to work it out with him. But if you’re not happy I think it’s worth taking the risk of leaving! You deserve to be happy!

      Ikr! I’ll have guys be like “oh yeah you’re right, you’re not gross or less valuable but it is a deal breaker” I don’t really blame them (because I am still coming to terms with it being “not a big deal”)

      It's very possible he or you were mostly a carrier. Neither one of you have to have sores all you have to do is shed.
