The western blot will only confirm if you have HSV 2 or not – it cannot identify location, no, but I think you can assume, with 95% certainty, that it is genital.
I also think that is just crap that he knew and didn’t tell you, but it is possible that someone misinformed about about their effectiveness, I suppose. You mentioned antiretroviral medicnes, which are for HIV, but I think you mean antivirals which are for herpes. Yes?
I hope you will pursue the western blot to get clear about this – I really do. If you decide you want to do it, just call and make a phone consultation appointment with me and we will get it all set up.
