Can latex allergies be confused with herpes?

She hasn't been tested, but they did bloodwork last week... show more Is it possible for a latex allergy to be confused with herpes? I understand that it can cause a poison ivy like rash.

She hasn't been tested, but they did bloodwork last week and results have yet to return. Thanks for the help.
