what herpesviridae do i have

Background.  Have had limited rosacea on face for years.  Over the past couple years,I've been exposed to someone who had a 'dormant' cold sore, and exposed to someone who had uveitis or iritis (not knowing it was probably triggered by a virus).  My rosacea is getting worse with lesions on the nose.  Putting topical finacea clears up one area, but the itchy redness creeps past the treated area and I now have ocular rosacea.  I never fully recouped from having the flu like illness from kissing the guy who had uveitis/iritis ( of course he claimed he had no illness).  I broke rash upon treatment with ampicillin and later doxycycline but truly think I should be on antiviral.
