Does anyone know if it is possible to get herpes outbreaks on your scalp and in your ear? I have been getting these little sores on my scalp but they are really small and I think they might just be pimples but they occur in the same places each month, at the back of my neck, near my temples and in my right ear. I have been suffering from constant HSV1 outbreaks for months and the sores on my head just make me feel more like a leper. i went to the derm and he said it was too small to test and had already healed. I wonder in it could be shingles or if I am just being paranoid. Anyone else have this problem?
