  • It gets dry too doesn't it? Starts to crack. It's herpes, not the kind your thinking of but a form of yes. You can get it by someone else that has touched you or you have touched in a Nonsexual waySee your doctor.

  • I have to agree, they do sound like a herpes outbreak. If someone has type 1 or 2 on their body and they are "shedding" you can inadvertantly get them anywhere, not just genitals and mouth. But be careful because you can also shed without an outbreak and not only transfer them to other areas of your body but to other people.

    I would be tested for both type 1 and 2 to see if that is what the bumps are, but from what you decribe it certainly does sound like herpes.
