I think with your index value of 6.43 and a second outbreak, there is little doubt that you have HSV 2. But you can certainly take a western blot, of course. The doctor you told you that the presence of antibody means you were just exposed could not be more incorrect. If your IgG is accurately positive, you both infected and potentially infectious to others. If you want to do the blot to be certain reach out to me on this website, I can help you.
