A quick follow up question: How accurate is an IgG test for HSV1 three months after exposure? In your experience, do HSV-1 IgG index values often increase from three to four months? If I do test positive for HSV-1, is there a consensus among the medical community about informing future partners, particularly if I don’t know where I have the virus?
I live in New York, so obtaining the Western Blot test might be difficult. In a month’s time–which will be about 16 weeks from exposure–I’ll be home in Florida and can run the test then. Have you experienced any problems with Western Blot tests sent in from Florida? To order the Western Blot test, should I call 503-226-6678?
The itching has subsided for the most part, but I do experience short periods of noticeable itchiness. Like you, I also wonder whether I should investigate the possibility of a Diflucan-resistant fungal infection, but I’m not sure where to turn to for advice. My gynecologist insists on prescribing me more Diflucan–do you have any recommendations for alternative resources?
Thanks again for all your help.
