Desperate for Advice


So I have been experiencing some penile discomfort for about a week now with no discharge or blisters of any kind, Just a burning sensation on the head of my penis and its very sensitive against my clothing . I have been to the Emergency room twice because I have no Insurance. I have been tested for gonorrhea and chlamydia but I'm negative. However, the last time I was in the E.R. I told the doctor that I was extremely paranoid and I wanted her to do an Exam. She examined me and assured me that I did not have herpes but I requested that she test me anyway. I picked up my test results today and they are as followed. I haven't spoken with a doctor because I can't afford to go right now, so I'm really hoping you guys may have some answers.
HSV1 IGG <0.91
HSV2 IGG 1.64
HSV I/2 IGM <0.91

The Paper is telling me that I'm positive for HSV2 as it's over 0.91
I'm starting to freak out a little bit. I have been on Doxycycline for about a week and it seems very slightly better; however, the irritation fluctuates from day to day. Please let me know if anyone has any advice.
