Since the time I made my original post, I have been continuing to get these possible symptoms basically every two weeks. Each time, they are only present for 1 to 3 days. Once a few weeks ago, I went to urgent care to get them looked at and they told me that it did not look like herpes to them and did not swab me. I’ve been trying to go back and insist on a swab but so far, every time I finally find the time/courage to go in, the possible symptoms are gone. I plan on trying again next time I see them but in the meantime I was just wondering what you think of this pattern of possible outbreaks? From what I’ve read, an outbreak every 2 weeks would be way more frequent than usual.
1. Have you seen any similar frequency of outbreaks in an HSV2+ patient before?
2. Is there a specific type of swab that I should ask for?
