1)Does it matter that is was at the top of forehead into the hair follicle area where she doesn’t have much hair?
No, the skin of the head is too thick for virus to penetrate, even in an area without much hair
2) It has been 4 days since the occurrence. She threw up today and has a slight fever. Could this be any indication of an hsv infection? I know it’s probably a stomach bug but i didn’t know if this could be part of an initial hsv 1 infection. Thank you
No, vomiting is not a sign of a new HSV infection. She likely has, as you suggested, a little stomach bug.
