: PEOPLE ALWAYS TALK ABOUT THE BURNING SENSATION AT THE SITE OF THE OUTBREAK. MY QUESTION IS I HAVE A BURNING SENSATION FROM MY GROWING TO ABOUT MY ANKLES IS THIS A HERPES THING? DOCTOR JUST THINKS IM CRAZY AND SAYS YOU DONT HAVE HERPES THANKS

Because herpes resides in the nerves in the lower back (and subsequently the nerves that are connected to your lower body) when it's dormant in the body, a lot of people complain of a burning or stinging sensation in the thighs and groin area prior to when an outbreak occurs. If you have been experiencing this pain for a while but have not had an outbreak, it might be something else. However, if you think you have been exposed to the herpes virus, get a second opinion. Your doc can't test for herpes unless you are having an active outbreak...but asking another physician can't hurt.

Good luck.
