I got some itchy lesion on one of my inner thighs and forearms. Previously, I was diagnosed with herpes, but unlike any outbreak, I have ever had. Any information on this would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Thank you so much for your response. I am 47. The area on my thigh I just noticed tonight. It was not there for sure a week or so ago. There is no history of having anything like this before, and it is not painful, or pus-filled vesicles like an outbreak seem to be. It is itchy, but not painful. The area on my arm has been a few weeks since I noticed it. It has darkened over that time. I do not have any other health conditions. I am pretty much healthy.

Most likely the lesions on your forearm and thigh are unrelated as there is a gap of few weeks in between. Also, the symptoms vary. Forearm lesions have almost healed, so there is need not to worry about it.
Since your thigh lesions have sudden onset, itching and also considering your age, it can be herpes zoster. Zoster usually starts suddenly, symptomatic and occurs in middle and older aged individuals.
Also, do not worry if you develop few more vesicles in the nearby area. Zoster usually develops fully over a period of two to three days.
I suggest you treatment for herpes zoster. Consult your specialist doctor, discuss with him or her and take treatment with consent.
I suggest you the above treatment for seven days. Also, get your blood sugar tested as zoster is more common in diabetics.
