Can a virus manifest itself as acne?
Last week my husband had a large and very painful pimple inside his nose. It lasted for more than a week. Now I have one on my cheek next to my nose. It's worse than anything I had as a teenager (I had mild acne back then) -- it's red, painful, and ugly.
I'm wondering if it's possible for a virus to manifest itself in ways other than sniffles etc -- such as acne, painful muscles in an isolated area, etc. I've always heard it said that a virus can "settle in a muscle" or some other area. Does anyone know if this can be true? I'm skeptical of that but we don't know everything there is to know about the human body so anything is possible.
