1. My mom said I’ve never had any cold sores or anything since childhood, and I don’t remember if I had any in my adulthood either. Should I do another test after four weeks to confirm which type I got? Or do you think it’s unnecessary since I’ve already tested positive for type 1?
There is no need to retest for HSV 1 given your high index value
2. I realize that Valacyclovir has many side effects on me such as anxiety, emptiness, and rashes on my body, so should I stop taking it? I’ve been taking 1GM three times a day for 5 days. I just feel too bad taking it.
If you feel badly taking it, stop It’s not like an antibiotic where you need to finish it.
Your symptoms don’t sound consistent with HSV 1 to me.
