    Dear Doctor,

    6 month back wife got her first genital out break & that time doctor said its Herpes without any Blood test. Just last week she got her 2 out break this time we go for HSV-2 Test for both husband & Wife.But doctor says its a fungal infection & you get it from your Husband. But i had never faced any problem or infection in Genital area, some time after sex with my wife itching start but if i wash my penis with soap itching stop.

    Test report of Husband -:
    Test Report of Wife -:

    kindly suggest she is infected from HSV 2 or 1, And why out break comes again & again.

    I am not a medical professional so all I can tell you is based on your figures you would be negative.

    For your wife the figure is so high it does not sound like an IgG blood test. But if it is then she would be positive for HSV 2. If she is positive then she could have had it for many many many years and had no idea she had it.

    Read the info in my signature line below.

    Again I am not a Doctor. You may want to get a second opinion to make sure where you stand.

    Here is a site where Doc's who specialize in herpes and see if there is one who is near you that can help you.
