Neg blood test?!?!

Recommended Posts

blackstar2887

So, i was diagnosed with HSV2 almost two years ago now, i took a swab from a large single sore, and came back Pos. This was my "preliminary outbreak". went to my doctor and she put me on valtrex, suppressive therapy. I regularly get tested for STD's and went in for my usual tests, looked at some old results and my HSV 1&2 came up negative in the blood, which seems strange. So i did another kind of herpes blood test and ALSO negative! what does this mean? i've had some outbreaks that look like small blisters but maybe only 5 outbreaks over the last 2 years. I am almost certain it has to be herpes, but wouldnt that show in my blood? anyone please shed light on this for me!!

I've read that the only sure fire way to diagnose herpes is from a culture test (the swab test or whatever). A high percentage of blood tests come back false negatives.

The pictures were amazing. @Divon I found her and you can get her exact instructions if you wish. Up to you. I can add you as a friend put you in the group and lead you to the exact post. (her eyes were affected) you or I can pm each other. let us know when you get an update.

      I am taking the same medication, and I have noticed that on occasion, it does come back, not as horrible as when it first began happening, but like little patches, small areas. I'd just refill my prescription, take as directed, and it'd go away. I took my last pill today, and I have been talking vitamins every day. Did not know about elderberry, I've been taking tumeric, B12, echinacea, vitamin C, lysine, cranberry and anything else that helps promote immune health as well as skin.
