Hi. I picked up HSV-2 (not 1) this summer on my neck, diagnosed via culture swab. Got it from rough making-out w/another guy w/course facial hair. Plus I had irritated my neck that morning from shaving. Primary outbreak one week later: multiple red patches w/blisters on neck midway between jawline and collarbone. Previously had been negative for HSV-1 & 2 via IgG testing. Hasn't yet come back.
No genital symptoms at time, even though brief oral (30 seconds?) performed on me. Also had undiagnosed scabies for 8 weeks soon thereafter w/intense itching & red rash/pimple-like bumps/sores on chest, underarms, elbows, penis, abdomen, shins, etc. Dermatologist examined me & diagnosed as scabies 3 weeks ago. Just completed 3 rounds of permethrin 5% lotion & Ivermectin treatment. (Got reinfected by myself after 1st round.)
Day after final treatment, noticed a single, somewhat itchy, round & flat yellowish sore w/red ring about the size of a pencil eraser at top of my pubic hair near my abdomen. Hadn't seen anything there the night before when I applied permethrin. Also have 3 similar things on my chest & underarm. Does this one sore in boxer shorts area sound at all like herpes? Or is it more likely scabies (or reaction to 3 rounds of permethrin)? Seeing derm next week & took a pic of it. Thanks.
