This is my case :
I had a risk situation at the end of October. After that night I presented a severe genital herpes that appears on different places the last 5weeks (could be stress?). I had outbreaks before, but never like this.
Also I am with some redness on my face, my eyes burning and I am just super scared to have HIV.
I went to my doctor and he said that I just need to wait for the test results (still 2weeks). But I am getting crazy with this.
Is possible to have continuous herpes and also a small allergy on the face during the window period?
I have tested negative to few HIV test on the past.

Thank you,

Herpes can flare up at any time. It tends to flare up more under stress, which lowers your immune system. Herpes is a virus just like HIV so a rash appearing anywhere on your body falls in line with what any virus can do. (Even the flu can cause random rashes)

Your doctor has it right you have to wait till your test results come back. But stressing over it is only going to make the symptoms of the Herpes outbreak worse and cause you more stress. See the pattern?
