Thanks for your prompt reply. I was diagnosed with Whitlow after they took a culture swab of the sore on my finger and sent it in to a lab. As for the outbreak, it began about 2-4 days after the encounter, and I definitely didn’t have any symptoms in my genitals or oral areas even up to 20 days after the whitlow outbreak (I checked thoroughly).
One last question I hope you can answer is:
Can I be sure that I did not have hsv2 prior to my whitlow diagnosis in mid-May if I had tested negative on 4 antibody tests (I believe they were IgG) between March 2022 and May 2022?
Thank you for all your help and expertise.
