Customer:

I don't know whether I'd class it as a blister, I believed it was almost spot like to begin with

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Have you ever been tested for herpes?

Customer:

I don't believe I have any other symptoms other than a slight itchy leg without a rash and a couple of small spots which are a tad saw

Customer:

I have not, I have just done a std test in which they took my blood also

Customer:

But that has not come back yet I do have an image if that would help

Customer:

But as I am not on a laptop am on a phone I do not know how to send it

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Yes an image would be great

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Customer:

<a href="http://tinypic.com?ref=33ergw1" target="_bl

Customer:

I thought it was that one may be the wrong link

Customer:

http://tinypic.com/r/33ergw1/8

Customer:

There we go, I must add I thought it could have been a zit so I did try and pop it with that outcome stupidly enough!

Dr. Shahzad MD :

This does not look like herpes at all

Customer:

The thing I really noticed was the itchy Ness and the fact it is sore now

Customer:

I do not believe I have had any other symptoms but I did go to the doctor for a pain in the testicles before but that has subsided!

Dr. Shahzad MD :

I personally think that it looks more like scabies.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

I mean with the itching and the picture that you have shown me.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

You should mention this to your doctor if you have not done so already.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

I mean to your GP.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

But it does not look like any STD

Customer:

That's much appreciated, I have also been feeling tired recently but this may just be as I'm paranoid about it at the Moment

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Yup

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Anymore questions?

Customer:

Could they determain If it was herpes from a std test ie blood test which I should hopefully get back soon, I think I'm just worrying to much but better to be safe!

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Yes, with blood tests we can get an idea if you were tested for herpes in those tests specifically.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Anymore questions?

Customer:

Oh sorry and the last thing was I have discovered a tiny rash on my wrist, it has no raised bumps or anything that I can feel but I haven't ever got one before

Dr. Shahzad MD :

that is not something that I would worry about too much.

Customer:

But my mum has suffered with dermititis for many years

Dr. Shahzad MD :

I would just relax.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

This does not sound or look like dermatitis.

Customer:

Okay well thanks very much for all your help I'll try to relax about it and just wait for the results many thanks
