While people can shed virus while on antivirals, it is also possible that the medication is working so well to reduce or prevent viral replication that the sore doesn’t have enough virus in it to make the test be positive.
If you want a more accurate result, you could get off Valtrex, yes
the lesions on the buttocks that you describe sound nothing like herpes
Females shed virus from the labia, the vagina, the anus. You do not shed virus from thick skin like the buttocks when no lesions are present, no.
I’m not sure how you would cover the labia and vagina with bike shorts and still have sex?
the penis is the area that needs coverage.
Do we know for sure that this is HSV 1 now? I didn’t think we did.
I don’t recommend other treatments such as the one you describe, no. We don’t have enough science about this yet.
You have posted seven times and paid for six. I’ve listed you as a spectator now.
