Hmmm. The problem is the sores. If you had had no sores and these results, I would be somewhat reassured, even though the first one was in the gray area. But you did have sores. And a clinician that thought there were herpes. And you had lots of pain. It is possible that you have HSV 1 genitally, yes. Were you recently the recipient of oral sex? That is the most likely way HSV 1 is transmitted to the genitals.
It could also have been chancroid, yes, in which case, you’re all done with treatment and will be fine. So hard to know!
I’m sorry but I’m not sure how else I can help you here unless you wish to ship us a western blot. If you do decide that you want to do that, please contact Roger at our clinic at the number on this website.
