Question Herpes on the stomach???!

Ok ,
since last December I have been getting this very odd rash on my stomach about an inch or so above my vagina. Its in a near straight line and is scabs and conpletely inflamed and its reoccured about 5 times. I am seeing a doc next week. I have changed laundry detergents and everything. It usually throbs or burns if I feel it at all. I have been the gyno and they've never seen anything that unusual..usually just BV if ever I complain about it. Though I have not had the rash at the time I went.
I am not sexual active currenlty and havent been for over a year. It had been over a year since I had sex last when it first appeared.
Is it possible to get herpes on the stomach? its right around my gential area does that mean my gential area is infected??? gaaah I am so confused.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Also as part of STD testing I do know that its not Herpes 2, though I do have coldsores, or HSV 1 . could i have spread it?

Cheers.

Don't need to panic as it could just be a recurrng eruption. You may like to try a dose of Arsenicum Album 30c and see if that helps. Arsenicum Album 30c is a homeopathic remedy that covers the symtoms you have described.

Hope this helps

Sweetpea-

Well you can never rule anything out and I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but it sounds like you might have contracted herpes on your stomach. You can get herpes anywhere, but since you said it's right above your pubic line I would be suspicious. The best thing you can do is go have the lesions swabbed and cultured while they're there so the doctor can tell you for sure if you have H or not.

It also doesn't matter if you're sexually active, and how long it's been since you've been sexually active. The virus can remain dormant in your sytem for years. You stated you already suffer from cold sores. You could have engaged in oral sex with a mate or kissed him, then he performs oral sex on you, and bam, you've got it. Autoinnoculation is rare, but it does happen.

Best bet, get tested and know for sure so you can go forth with a treatment, depending on what it is.
