1. Why did my IGG go down but my supplemental turned positive? Do I basically accept the fact that I have HSV2 regardless of an outbreak?
2. Can you have the symptoms I described (leg/groin burning/ back pain and some genital burning) but no outbreak for over a week? Is this considered an outbreak?
It is not considered an outbreak – if anything it might be prodrome
3. How accurate are positive supplementals by labcorp?
I have 97 patients who have positive supplemental tests and negative western blots.
4.Should I take the western blot to confirm once in for all
