Herpes over your entire body?

is it possible to have herpes outbreak over your entire body? approx 3 weeks ago i noticed 3 pimplish bumps on my arm... it progressed to the point i went to the doctor one week later. the rash was specific to my arm and my doctor said shes almost positive it was a poison plant rash, but theres a small chance it could be herpes, or shingles. shortly after my doctor visit, i got another site of the rash on both ankles, over the past 2 weeks, the main rash has dried up and crusted over, but i have itchy dots, ALL OVER my body, ankles, legs, thighs, back, backs of my arms, stomache... they almost look like the herpes virus and im very concerned. i currently do NOT have a cold sore on my mouth, nor have any sores in close proximity to my genitals

No, herpes does not cover your entire body.
