I strongly encourage you not to believe this diagnosis quite yet. The supplemental test from LabCorp and I’m assuming that’s where it’s from, has many false positives. You also have a low positive index value and the center for disease control recommends that you obtain confirmatory testing. Unfortunately, the supplemental test is not the best confirmatory test but the herpes western blot is. Also, the IGN test should never have been done. The Center for disease control says never to use it and Quest Diagnostics is taking it off of their list of tests that one can choose. I really do not think you should believe this diagnosis at this point. You can work with your own provider to get herpes western blot from the University of Washington or you can work with me but you need to get this test done.
