Herpes liabilis

I had herpes all over my chest when I was 10 years old. At that time I was vaccinated to cure it. Thereafter, I never had it in my chest. But ever since it started appearing over my lips in the minified form probably as herpes liabilis. It appears once or twice in an year and gets cured using quadriderm only.

Herpes zoster just appears once in a lifetime , unless you have  immunodeficiency . Herpes labialis is a recurrent condition which can affect the same place. if the recurrences become more than 8-10 episodes in a year then we put the patient on suppressive therapy with anti virals.
