I was an avid wrestler in college and comes with wrestling are many skin diseases. I was diagnosed with Herpes (Cranial) which I believe stays on the head and face. Minor outbreaks result in small leasons which are like shingles (painful) and go away with sometimes minimal scaring. I have not had an outbreak in over 15 years as I am now 41. However, I do get these sore patches that are located on the face, under the skin and never surface. I also get sore patches on the upper torso with no outright signs. My question is this.. Is this the same Herpes just taking on other characterists? The pain last about 2 days and then completly goes away.

  • Considering your symptoms it sure seems like it. Are the raised areas in the same locations as 15 years ago? Might I say, you’re doing well with this disease in general. You really are. This disease has only gotten aggressively worse in time. All things considered are you in good health? On a personally note: Herpes is an inevitable infectious disease I must consider while investigating HIV. I normally don’t get to many reports or observations as subtle as yours but realize if people are generally getting by they tend not to mention anything like this when they really should. In Africa, we find this evident. They have enough health problems as it is, why mention a case like yours. If they took this more seriously then science could be more effective but still I can’t blame them for having such a culture.
