My Test Results???

3 posts in this topic

Here are the results from all the herpes tests that I have taken. I am so confused at the conflicting information/results of these tests. Please take a look and share your thoughts.......

Week 11 (Doctor #1):

Pockit test = negative

IgG type-specific Elisa (negative<0.9, positive>1.1)

HSV1= 0.54

HSV2= 4.14

Week 13 (Doctor #2):

Pockit test = negative

Week 15 (Doctor #3):

IgG type-specific Elisa (negative<.89, positive>.89)

HSV1= 0.20

HSV2= 3.44

Week 16 (Doctor #4):

pockit test = negative

Week 17 (Doctor #5):

WESTERN BLOT

HSV1 = negative

HSV2 = negative

If I was confused before, I am even moreso today. Please help me make sense of these results..

symptoms?

what symptoms have you experienced? after having an itchy rash for the second time, i had the blood work done, and received an answer of equivocal, and the doctor said i could assume i was not infected. they seem to have no clue. my symptoms: two occasions ("outbreaks"?), spaced apart by 18 months, with lots of itching and inflammation, but no sores or discharge. total insanity.

      30 years of this. Pretty tired
      So, yeah, as I've gotten older, ob's haven't be as frequent, but the last few months have been like when I first got this. I mean 4-5 outbreaks in 3 months is pretty shitty. Hello, 2016? Still no cure. What's up with that? So I'm feeling a little depressed and in pain, and just plain miserable. I'm sure I'll be fine in a few days. Just venting. Thank you.

      Is this Prodrome or??
      The only way to truly know would be having the area swabbed to see if you test positive. If this is not possible, have a blood test done. Prodrome can have many symptoms. Usually tingling, redness, itching, irritation, nerve pain etc... hsv is different for everyone. Hope this helps. Much love, K

      Use Destin diaper rash cream to keep the area dry. It also helps with redness! Has zinc in it which is great for healing blisters.
