hi i have something similar. I have an area of about a quarter that keeps on looking like herpes. but isnt! did you by the way get blood tested for herpes (always good idea)?. but what you described sounds a bit like what i have. do your symptoms have red area with small squigly pimple like lines? mine come and go but are presnt atleast 1/2 of the month. does anything in particular seem to cause outbreaks- like sweat, drinking,..etc. if you have pics of this i'm very interested and i promise not to abusively use any info you email me. thanks.
