Since i was twenty years old i have been experiencing a vast amount of ingrown hair but never thought of it being herpes. I have not experience sores or blisters on my face. However, I did experience one time severe itching of the genital area and blistering due to scratching but the doctor dismissed this as an yeast infection. ten years after i am diagnosed with genital herpes. could you help me understand if this was ways of knowing that i had herpes. i was informed that i have hsv 1 (herpes I IGM) 2.23 and herpes II IGG - 0.72. could you please explain if this is really me having herpes or should i re-take a test.
