Thanks everyone for showing your support! well the doctor took one look at them and said, these are not herpes sores...(laughing at myself for being paranoid!) she did however say that they are some form of bacterial...and the big one on my arm that sorta looks like a herpes sore, she cultured. should know what it is on thursday. she said the reason why that one might have grown is because maybe it got infected with a fungus (eeww) or something...NOW, im even more dumbfounded because this makes me sound dirty or like someone who practices bad hygiene, and im neither of those
anyhow she put me on an antibiotic and gave me a cream for the bigger one on my arm. the itching has gone away from the big one. and after one dose, the other little lession like bumps have kinda dried out and some have scabbed over a bit. although ive found a few new ones that i didnt feel before today...they still kinda itch. anyhow, again, thanks for your support! will report back in a few days when the culture results get in.
