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.
