Hello doctor,
The left side uppper vermillion border there is a pimple like swelling with a white dot . It's hurting like a punching pain every now and then . I am very much scared . Is it because I sometimes touch the laptop or phone and then touch my skin as it itches ( or is it anything) I am still petrified about herpes . Please advise . Other side above the vermillion border ( right side) there is a whitehead and that too hurts is the same white head coming or anything else . Please help

Brief Answer:
Not herpes

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for the follow up and photograph.
It is just a folliculitis and not herpes.
Herpes presents as a cluster of water filled rashes.
Apply an antibacterial cream like mupirocine twice daily for a week.
This should help you.
Let me know if you have any other doubts.
Thanks.
