No, HSV 1 does not come and go as you are describing in the genital area. As we likely discussed, the HSV 1 screening test isn’t great, and the western blot will be the telling thing for us. If you are HSV 1 positive by western blot, we will send you swabs, yes. But honestly, nothing sounds like herpes here to me.
Let’s wait and see what happens with the western blot, OK?
Tingling is not herpes specific.
