First of all,pls don’t worrya s they don’t sound like herpes.Herpes presents with painful blisters that scab over.It can be folliculitis,contact dermatitis,rash due to friction rub with clothes, dermatitis (atopic, contact, allergic) or excessive sweating causing sweat dermatitis.
You may try calamine lotion on the rash.You should also maintain hygiene and try to keep the area clean and dry, wear loose-fitting cotton clothing. Also use an antibacterial soap or mild soap like dove.Avoid any kind of cosmetics.You can also use calamine lotion or a mild steroid cream like dermacort on the rash. If the bumps are itchy,you can take some antihistaminic like benadryl or Claritin.
Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional queries.Kind regards.
thank you for that information. that eased my mind a great deal. everything is fine right now. there is no rash. and i will try a mild soap also because i notice some soaps like the axe soap causes itchiness and irritantaility.
