An infection caused by Herpes simples 1 has burst around the eye. The origin may be elsewhere in the skin. Atopy and different forms of immunosuppression may be precipitating factors in more severe symptoms. Vesicles of different age and substantial oedema are seen in the skin. The condition of the cornea should be checked (the yellow colour in the picture is probably due to corneal staining). With this clinical picture, also hesper zoster would be possible, and it is advisable to start the antiviral medication with the higher zoster dosage until the culture result is at hand.
