Hey ALL,
             I hope this topic does not seem to trivial, last time I posted at this site...I asked about some important medical concerns that I had.  But now, I am concerned because I have noticed some outbreaks occurring on my skin....on my face.  I am a guy, I do shave once or twice a week, so I know that maybe that is irrating my skin.....but despite seems to me, that my outbreak seems more like a herpes outbreak.  I have not been diagnosed with herpes...and I know that I don't have genital herpes.  But Epstein Barr is a virus from the herpes family....right?   Therefore, I'm wondering if anyone else noticed any issues with their matter how slight.  I'm just going to be more mindful to use acne medicine and wipes, everyday.  But, if anyone suggests going to the dermatoligist...that might be an option for me down the road.  Thanks.

If you have EB, it is possible to break out with Shingles if you have not had Chicken Pox.

Are the spots hurting? Are they flat raw looking areas or pus filled bumps. You might want to call and speak with your PC dr's nurse and have her relay the new development to your dr. and see what he suggests.
