1. If (or when) I have an outbreak in the next 3 months, I am assuming I should get back to the doctor ASAP to have that wound cultured, yes?
Absolutely, but not culture – PCR swab if at all possible
2. If (or when) I have an outbreak in the next 3 months AND if it cultures positively, I probably would not need to bother with any more blood tests of any kind anymore.. or should I still?
If the swab test is positive AND typed (that is important) then I don’t see a need for future blood antibody testing, nho.
3. Can you see any possible scenario in which I DO NOT HAVE genital herpes, regardless of type?
Oh yes. People often tell them that they have sores that don’t turn out to be herpes. There is hope.
