2 months ago I found out that I have contracted genital herpes. I am finding it really hard to cope with. I have had no second outbreak as of yet but have been back a for the clinic and doctor as I am worried that a change in my facial skin is related to the herpes. I have an under the skin rash all over my face. Tiny bumps all over my face that are more visible in the light. I also have spots on my back shoulders and chest I think the sun makes it worse. I had tests for HIV Syphilis to be safe and both came back negative. any body else noticed this rash on face?
