Following on from above I completed a new IGG test (after 12 weeks exposure) and have received the following results:
HSV 1: 0.73 (it was 1.1 4 weeks ago)
HSV 2: 2.22 (it was 0.5 4 weeks ago)
I have had zero symptoms since the above. I am rather confused why I was positive for HSV 1 last time and now negative? Also do you believe my HSV 2 result is a true positive?
Thank you in advance
I felt a ‘spot’ then checked with a mirror, after 3-4 days more appeared (around 8) They looked very similar to mouth ulcers. They were a bit uncomfortable but didn’t seem to cause the extreme pain I’ve read online that would be expected. A soak in the bath certainly did help!
Yes I took acyclovir 5 times a day from 23 Dec for a week. Do you think this may have had an impact on my blood result?
Do you think blood result could be accurate after 8 weeks exposure?
I’ve never had a coldsore on my face, never had a tingle or anything remotely similar.
I’m interested to know your thoughts on this.
