brittuh_ posted:
Im 22 years old living with hsv-1and 2. Well 2 days ago I was experiencing pain in my elbow,.thumb, and top pointer finger like arthritis. Well the next day it stopped and around 10 pm I noticed white splotches on my inner pinky and ring finger. It looked like tried paint or toothpaste. I tried washing it off but nothing happened. And within 20 mins all traces dissapeared. there was no itching, pain, or burning could this be herpetic witlow or something else?
