The Herpeselect test that I have done thus far does not give a specific numerical value for IGG. It only gives <.90. I see many other people posting specific values such as 0.22 and so forth.
Is there a specific Herpeselect test that my Dr needs to request in order to see this specific numerical value? I would like to be able to compare if this HSV2 IGG number increases between my future blood tests. Current test results say “HSV 1/2 IGG, type specific AB Herpeselect” and then it gives “HSV 2 IGG Type Specific AB” result as < .90 but no specific figure.
Also, another symptom I did not mention which has been happening intermittently since the 7 week ago encounter (and not before), is if I run my finger across the top of my shaft I will get a dry white dandruff looking streak of dead skin cells. It is not like skin peeling off but rather a dry white dust line. Is this a possible symptom? I have excellent hygiene and again this symptom only started 7 weeks ago. So that is just one more new issue along with all the others (tingle, burning, red scrotum, shaft skin looking more tight and wrinkled, etc.)
