Going into 11 months of continous symptoms.

lips, appearance & feeling of sunburn
tailbone & top of thighs.
Nov 20/ IgG retest & western blot test.
"Negative for antibody to HSV-1 and HSV-2.
No evidence of infection with HSV-1 or HSV-2. ."
*at 67 my body's unable to produce detectable antibodies.
*never having hsv-1, immune system defenseless against hsv-2.
*I'm infected with something other than or in addition to hsv.
lMy fear is, being in what feels like an uninterrupted outbreak,
I'm continuously highly infectious.
Any thoughts on my situation greatly appreciated
your symptoms aren't related at all to herpes.
you've tested negative repeatedly to herpes
- really no reason to think this is herpes
causing your symptoms.
have you followed up with a neurologist at all
for some of your symptoms?
hi grace thank you for your reply.
I haven't seen a neurologist.
Is there is an std out there lurking
that can cause neurological symptoms such as mine?
Finding it hard for me to believe
that I didn't contract some std varient,
when 2 weeks after sexual contact,
my urethra begins burning
then thighs, lips & tailbone follow.
