Andy12345, I can only look at what set of questions we are on and it says you’ve paid for the first question and two follow ups. If you have something that says you’ve done that twice, I can check with the webmaster.
So you are likely positive for HSV 2. when an person as an index value between 1.1 an 3.5, we like to do a confirmatory test, so you can see that you are getting right up to the point of not needed confirmation of this result. If you had no symptoms at all, I would strongly suggest that you get confirmatory testing, but the scabs are really worrisome. On the other hand, if you have never had intercourse then I would still strongly suggest that you get a confirmatory test.
The experience that you had did not put you at risk for genital herpes. If you do have herpes, then I feel that it was acquired at some other time.
Can you tell me a bit about your sexual history? And where do you live? Would you be able to get a herpes western blot confirmatory test?
