Expert Q & A Answers About eczema

I’m a virgin...could I have herpes?

I think I have genital herpes...I have a rash on my legs, and sometimes on the head of my penis. I am not married yet and I never had any kind of intercourse, oral sex or genital rubbing...so I don’t know how I got these symptoms. I shower daily, and I’m neat and clean. But I live in a hot and sweaty climate, and my legs get really sweaty during the summer. Could that be the cause?

Do I have scabies or hives or something? I keep noticing a skin rash when I fool around with my girlfriend.

For the last three weeks, I have been getting skin rashes before and after fooling around with my girlfriend. (We aren't having sex.) These rashes (small bumps) come and disappear within an hour or so. Just recently, I spotted some on the back of my neck, on my lower chest and inner elbow. Do I have scabies or hives, or something else?
