i gave a guy i knew a handjob about 3 months ago. he had done everything except sex before with other girls. recently i have gotten a lot of red dots, kinda like pimples, on my butt and legs. i also have some breakouts on my chest though, so could this just be pimples, or is it a sign of herpes? theres none on my actual genital area, but i am still worried. please help!

It sounds like you may have a rash or allergic reaction, something you'll want to have checked out by a doctor. If it is just acne these threads may be helpful:
