today i was diagnosed with herpes. the dr took a quick look at them and said "it looks like herpes" the she sent me to the lab and had a blood test. I been having this painless bumps that look like pimples for about 4 months now and they dont go away. Im still waiting on my results but I wana stay positive. can anyone here(w herpes) give me some kind of information? do the first outbreaks last that long?
more info: they are not sores more like pimples. they dont hurt or burn. dnt hurt when I pee or take a shower. no pain at all
my doctor called me this morning and said my results were negative, but shes knows its herpes just by looking at my genital bumps. the doctor said that maybe it was too soon to detect the herpes and that I should get a re-tested. how soon can herpes be detected? how long should I wait to get another test?
