Thank you for your reply. I found a lab to do an igg test and conducted this test after 18 weeks.
Would this be considered conclusive given the time frame or would you recommend further testing.
Have you seen a false negative after 18 weeks with any of your patients.
I had a single bump develop on the base of my penis. It popped like a zit, it was harder to the touch. It’s been 48 hours and still hasn’t developed into a sore/legion. It’s a little tender but not painful. I don’t believe it to be a herpe but will be monitoring it for the next couple of days to see if it develops further.
Just wanted to add to this.
I’ve been experiencing itching for 6 days now. It’s not intense, and seems to come and go. More so when I’m sweaty.
My understanding was herpes itch prior to outbreak lasts about 24 hours then sores would appear.
I’m kind of at a loss of what may be happening.
I have another dr appointment tomorrow where I will be asking about this, and asking again for another igg blood test. If they won’t give it to me I have found another clinic locally that will do it just to be safe.
Definitely interested in hearing your thoughts as a specialist.
Also if was exposed to herpes, and was having symptoms, is it safe to assume I would have had an outbreak?
