1. Should I finish the medication, and take the western blot to be 100% sure? If the medication interferes with the test, should I stop medication and take the test to confirm I have it?
Seven days of Valtrex will not interfere with the testing for the blot, but probably no need to finish the meds at this point
2. If this is an outbreak, when did I get infected? Is it possible to have gotten infected years ago and just now have an outbreak or does this mean I was recently exposed.
If you’ve had a negative IgG test in 2019, then if this is accurate, you were infected somewhere between 2019 and 2023
3. What do you think and what do you think would be my best course of action moving forward?
Get a western blot AND if you get more lesions on your penis, get them swab tested.
