You diagnose a 17-year-old female with genital herpes simplex. She has no health insurance. Which of the following would you prescribe?

4.*This 40-year old man comes to you with this finding on the bottom of his left foot. He has no other skin changes elsewhere. He volunteers that it appeared today after he wore a new pair of boots to his construction job and they felt like they were “rubbing”. He took some naproxen this evening because of the pain but takes no other medications. What is the most likely diagnosis?
5.*A 30-year old woman presents to you with this finding. You perform a complete skin exam and find that she has similar finding on the other arm but no other skin changes. She reports that they are itchy but that she’s afraid to scratch them so she put bandaids over them to protect them. She otherwise feels well and reports that she recently had a conference and stayed in a hotel. What is the most likely diagnosis for this patient?
6.*This 7-year old boy is brought into the office by his mother for this rash on his cheek. He has no other rash elsewhere. He says it is more painful than itchy. He has never had anything like it before. He feels well otherwise. What is the most likely diagnosis for this patient?
7.*This 66-year old woman presents with this itchy and painful rash. It began on her neck and spread around her trunk. She also had some “soreness in her mouth about that time too”. She has taken hydrochlorothiazide and simvastatin for over 7 years. She has not treated this rash in any way. What is the most appropriate next step?
8.*This 5-year old girl is brought into the urgent clinic by her parents for this rash. It started 1 day ago and began on her face and trunk. The girl wouldn’t eat because her mouth was sore and now she’s “hot” and lethargic. She normally doesn’t take medicine, but her parents say she has been taking “an antibiotic” for the past 3 days. What is the most likely diagnosis for this patient?
