Question Asked:

"Good afternoon Dr. I have this issue that started a couple of years ago, I woke up on morning with pains all over my body, I was feeling seriously feverish and after a while, I noticed a swelling around my waist that looked like a spider's bite. my mum and I took it for that we applied a close up paste on it and after 2-3days it vanished. only to reoccur at the same spots occasionally, mostly before I see my period and I gave taken medications for it but it didn't stop. now my period is very irregular and can skip for months without me being pregnant.

    Hello. If you have the swelling now, you can attach a picture of it. I am not sure if the rash has a relation to your menses. Do you get vaginal discharge or loe abdominal pain? Then these may be pointers to a pelvic inflammatory disease which needs treatment. How long has your menses being irregular?

    yes I get vagina discharge and lower abdominal pain at times. my period has been irregular for over 2years. it used to just change dates but as at last year, it started skipping months. as for the picture, I'm in a public place now so I can't take one but I will as soon as I get home. the rash looks exactly like a fever rash and has liquid in it.

    That is a vesicular rash. Is it itchy? You also have fever and body pains right? You may be having a viral infection. Try not to scratch it, you can apply some calamine lotion and get a multivitamin supplement to boost your immunity. Take lots of fluids and fruit juice too. You need to see a Doctor for an endocervical swab MCS and appropriate drugs for treatment. That is a reason for the irregular periods. All the best

    Good evening Dr. Here's a picture of what it looks like. I suspected herpes but I was told it has no cure yet. please how true is that? and what possible remedy can I take because I'm scared of infertility. I'm taking a health supplement at the moment.

    It looks like herpes. Did you have chicken pox as a child. You need to see a Dermatologist to prescribe medications. Do you also have same type of rash in your genitals.

    yes, I get the same type of rash in my genitals too. I never had chicken pox as a child and I haven't had chicken pox.

    Herpes simplex is a sexually transmitted viral infection, it also recurs. They are medications to keep it from recurring but you will need to see a Dermatologist especially now that you have the rash. I will not be able to prescribe on this platform. All the best
