What test did you take to confirm hsv2 and any numbers involved just to rule out the false positive issue.
I wasn't actually shown a test chart with numbers on it, but she did confirm that I tested positive for HSV 2 only.
Any number 3.5 and below would need retesting so its important to know the numbers
I'm not sure what to say, but I am still looking for some help/answers on those questions I asked above on the original post if you wouldn't mind helping me out
1. Whitlow lesions are very painful so red spots are not whitlow. Whitlow is only passable with an open blister. Its only diagnosed with a swab of a recent lesion not confirmed by visual.
2. Whitlow doesnot shed so only contagious with a blister.
3.People with mulitple outbreaks take meds but you need to confirm you in fact have it.
I can only go on the fact that I had blood work done at planned parenthood and had to wait 3-5 days for the results to come in, she called me on the phone and told me everything and explained to me what to expect when the results came.
The red spots can be very sensitive at times if they are scratched by something or poked the wrong way. I work with my hands a lot so sometimes the tools I use can irritate the area in question. It's like I will feel a very sharp pain where it was when agitated.
The outbreaks I've had on my genitals are always very short lived. This only the second time I'm having an issue on my hand.
Do you recommend I see my dermatologist or try seeing my normal doctor at planned parenthood?
And I would really like to take the time to thank you for your time and help. It's so nice that I can get help/support from others
A Derm would be best as can do a biopsy
You're a godsend for being so helpful, I really can't thank you enough. You've really eased a gross amount of stress for me
