I recently had some itchy bumps on my tailbone so I went to the dr. She said it was more than likely shingles but tested for herpes as well, I have been woth my fiance for 13 yrs and only him. I did have a boyfriend in highschool that I had unprotected sex woth but, I have never had a fever blister on my mouth or genitle area, nothing at all!
My resukts came in that the bumps were shingles ( i have never had chicken pox) The IGG test showed HSV1 43.27 HSV2 1.90 and shingles 1.37
Is it possible having the shingles infection and the high number of HSV1 could cause a false positive for HSV2? My fiance was tested as well and he is neg HSV2 and Positive HSV1....thanks in advance
