I am not sure if i am getting the symptoms of herpetic whitlow or not.
About 8 days ago i think my right index finger came into contact with someone elses herpes blister (not 100% sure). I dont believe i had any cuts or openings on my finger, it was on the side of my finger not near the nail. However about 2 days later the side, top part of my right index finger (the one that was touched) has had a bruised sensation only when you touch it for the past 6 days. Is this a normal predome symtpom for herpes or would i have gotten blisters by now. The fingers looks normal but is sore. I do have a bit of anxiety over these things so could that be the problem?
