Im worried. I have some pictures but i dont know how to show it to you’ll

 

 

Doctor: Thanks for your question.No, it does not appear to be ‘a herpes’. Without a physical examination, it is not easy to predict, but it looks to me like an allergy or a fungal infection. You can try some antihistamines for a couple of days and get some cortisone creams applied on it. If it does not work then a dermatological consultation will be a must.Hope it helps.
