I guess to expand that question. Would that number likely be higher 10 weeks post exposure showing possible signs?
So i went to Labcorp and had a panel done. Everything came back negative except for HSV.
HSV1 was 52.60
HSV2 was 1.72 no supplement test done.
I guess the question is, after 10 weeks post exposure, would the index numbers be higher for HSV2? I know this is well within the window of false positive and the high HSV1 index could also cause some issues.
Thanks for the response. Unfortunately, the two times i was at he clinics, there were no active blisters to swab. I think the diagnosis was mainly due to the fact the the lesion were actually about an inch or so above the base of penis, besides seeing the infected hair and actually no other blisters at the time, then that’s what they based the opinion on. I was just confused because this hasn’t presented at all like “normal” herpes for a primary outbreak i guess. I was expecting lesion to be very painful such as the ones i get with an oral breakout. I also thought herpes usually is unilateral and this seems to be on both sides. They also are never grouped or inflamed.
I’m guessing the best option is to take a IgG test or wait and see if another OB occurs? Is it common for OB’s to continue over several months?
