Im a 22 year old male and im consfused about what it looks live hives but not exactly sure if it could be that or herpes...but i don't get any cold sores. It starts off by a little redness around my mouth or right above my chin...it then looks like a mosquito bite or if im having a allergic reaction to something...half of the time they go away and the other half they kinda turn into a popped pimple in a way but no pain at all....i don't think its cold sores...so im just kinda confused and don't know what to do....

These lesions could be:
-HIVES, is a skin reaction to an allergen, medicine or infection. They may also occur in very nervous people. Th lesions are in the form of red bumps that may be present anywhere on the face or body.
-The other possibility for these lesions in your age is Acne. It is a common skin problem that may present with red bumps, pus filled lesions or black headed.
-Lesions due to allergic dermatitis are usually in the form of red, itchy rash and blisters.
- Herpetic eruptions are extremely painful red blisters that usually crust off.
Direct clinical examination is essential.
