I was tested for HSV at the local health clinic with a swap on small site. and for any other std's.
The nuse told me it was positive for HSV, I aksed one or 2 and she replied 2. Pretty quickly and non-chalantly.
I took it upon myself to pay for and get a blood test from lab-corp. Test came back negative for HSV 2 and positive for HSV 1 with a 4.91 result. Both test say they were Type specific IgG.
I don't have a family Dr and am confused.
Initial outbreak was some red raised spots but none of the grouped blisters I have seen. Since then recurrenses have been minor some payne in upper legs near my back but I have low back pain anyway.
I guess am I safe to say I only have HSV 1 and should I stop worrying myself crazy don't have anyone to talk to.
