Herpes doesn't have a white head like a pimple - it is like a blister with clear fluid inside, or it is like an open sore (and painful), or it is like a more minor dry skin patch or rash (like psoriasis or ringworm or eczema) . . . symptoms can be obvious or hardly visible, or like a benign rash, but not like a pimple . . . if it is a hair follicle or clogged pore or related issue, it is not herpes
Herpes lesions are more superficial than pimples. Think of herpes as causing blisters "on" the skin, and pimples as starting "in" the skin then coming to a head.
The inner thigh is the wrong place for new herpes. Initial herpes outbreaks occur where the virus enters the body, i.e. the parts that get friction during sex (labia, vaginal opening, etc).
Thanks for you reply.
I already have oral hsv1 from a child. I heard you can get herpes on your inner thighs though? How long do herpes lesions last and do they always blister? Only asking as I've heard that herpes can get mistaken for ingrown hairs and pimples
Read my reply above.
The vast majority of apparent pimples or hair follicle infections are exactly that, not herpes. It is exceedingly unlikely your thigh pimple was herpes.
Time for you to move on. I won't have anything more to say.
