Herpes Pimples and Steroid Cream

Recommended Posts

Hi all.


WonderingWondering if these bump like pimples on my legs are herpes or not. They itch before they come but they don't blister or have any fluid. Doctor said they were foliculitis. Never had that before at all. Anyway, she perscribed steroid cream with an antibiotic in it. So just a question to throw out there? If it is a herpes pimple, will this cream still work? She refused to swab it so I just wondered how would I know?

If it's herpes it will make it worse... steroids LOWER the immunity because they are stopping your body from over-reacting to the irritant ... you never use steroids for H ;)


I HIGHLY doubt it's Herpes ... so I'd go with the Dr's diagnosis ... certainly if the cream works, you know it wasn't H ;)
