    Skin condition-rash-STD ? resulting in severe cracking, dry, worn, chapped lips
    An_251024 posted:
    [breakdown of tissue on lips>

    I'm seem to have a rash or some soreness on both my private parts, and lips.
    Private parts - have only seen 1 incident in the last 2 years.
    Lips - seems like I'm having a lot of trouble and it's getting worse daily.

    Is this a weird skin condition ?
    And what kind of doctor would treat this ? Internal Medicine, Infectious Disease ?
    My experience, is no matter who you try, they just look dumbfounded.
    I know someone must have had the same thing, and I'm wondering how to diagnose it.

    I've been on the watch for herpes, and had an IGG test, a while back that came back Positive for HSV2
    My conditions are more rash-like though, and I've never had breakouts, or any painful Outbreaks.

    This is not Herpes ! although It may be associated with Herpes !
    I don't have an Outbreak to take a sample from or have a Dr. inspect.
