Thanks for posting your query at I can understand your concern.

It doesn't seem to be any std or herpes.

It seems to be due to eczema which is due to an allergy.

Application of cortisone cream mixed with neosporin cream twice daily would be useful.

In case the lesions do not heal in a week, I would recommend consulting a local dermatologist.

If you could send me one more pic which is a bit zoomed out, it would help me see the lesion better. But it's surely not a std.

Hope this helps, Please feel free to ask any follow-up queries.

Take care

i will attach 2 more pic of my hand and legs, i have itching all over body at morning when i wokeup


Thanks for your reply and for the pictures.

It looks like eczema. I would suggest you follow my recommendation. For itching you can take an anti histamine like claritin.

Please let me know if you have any queries.

Take care
