1. Having HSV1 Antibodies for my entire life, how can it be an HSV1 outbreak that then moves to my hands and eyes??
2. Spoke to doctors and have been told acyclovir does not interfere with hsv-2 antibody detection using IGG blood test. I have had no sex since first HSV2 “Positive” result. HSV-2 Antibodies would have shown up already no? Additionally, I have always been positive for HSV1 and each test has came back as positive.
3. I have came back negative on every test for any other STD
4. Symptoms fit so well with herpes and follow a path from my genitals to my hands then my eyes. I have not found anything else that causes these same symptoms in the same fashion with the same sensations at the same time.
5. Next step is to get off acyclovir and let the virus take its course but I am cautions because I believe it to be in my eyes. I also have a two year old and can spread it to him through my hands potentially.
Feel caught between a rock and a hard place where doctors need to see the actual full blown symptoms without the medication but I can potentially risk exposing my child through symptomatic or asymptomatic shedding of herpetic whitlow and risk potential vision loss for herpes in the eyes.
