Hello,
Thanks for the query. Kindly include more info like the time it started, course, color, is there any itching associated?, is any history of associated fever and body pains?
With the brief history you provided, its difficult to assess if they are heat boils, or due to viral infection or an alllergy.

TO CHECK HERPES YOU MUST REMEMBER:
ORIGIN:HERPES ORIGINATE CAUDOCEPALLICALY,THAT IS THE RASH FIRST APPEAR ON TRUNK AND RADIATE TO EXTREMITIES.
2.FEVER IS USUALLY ASSOCIATED ,IT IS HIGH GRADE.101-103

3.LOOK FOR A DARK SPOT NEAR FIRST MOLAR TEETH K/A KOPLIC SPOT.

4.IF THESE SIGNS ARE ABSENT IT SHOULD NOT BE HERPES.

5.HOWEVER OTHER VIRAL RASH LIKE RUBELLA ,MUMPS,MEASELS HAVE DIFFERENT PATTERN,BUT FEVER IS ALWAYS COMMAN WITH INTENSE HEADACHE AND PAIN.

6.CHECK FOR IMMUNIZATION HISTORY LIKE MMR

7.STOP ANY DRUG ,WHICH MAY SHOW RASH

HEAT ERUPTION OR PRICKLY HEAT CAN EASILY BE CONFUSED WITH RASHES ASSOCIATED WITH DRUG REACTION,HYPERSENSITIVITY,OR ANY INFECTION.
ASSOCIATION OF FEVER MAY MAKE THE PICTURE MORE CONFUSING ,SO SAFE OPTION IS TO VISIT A PHYSICIAN.
