What causes itchy rashes on side of stomach and back?
Question: Hi, I woke up with a cluster of rashes on the right side of my stomach and also noticed the same thing on my back. The rashes are tiny but in clusters and have blackheads without any pulse. I have a burning sensation and it itches once in a while. My dlctor prescribed virest 400mg 2 tablets 3 times a day but didnt properly school me on what I am infected with. I have not had any unprotected sex or lived a reckless life. Do these symptoms sound like I am infected with HSV?
