Doctor: Hello, Thanks for the query ATD.It appears that you are suffering from a viral infection known as herpes Simplex.It is very common to recur with seasonal flu or cold.These rashes are painful.My advice is to use Acivir cream over affected area thrice in a day for 7- 10 days. Please discuss my advice with your physician.Hope these helps.
